TCV from early beginnings to present day
TCV's roots are established through the creation of the Conservation Corps.
The Conservation Corps expands its programme of practical tasks with most practical work taking place at nature reserves in the countryside.
The British Trust for Conservation Volunteers is established as an independent organisation and opens up offices around England, Wales and Scotland.
The focus of BTCV's activities begins to shift to include the urban environment and community action.
BTCV expands throughout the decade - the emphasis is on people and society as well as the environment.
New millennium, new horizons. BTCV launches its Millennium Volunteers programme providing over 3,000 volunteering placements for young people aged 16-24.
The present day
On 1st May 2012 - BTCV becomes known as TCV. Today, TCV operates across the UK, improving local environments and enhancing biodiversity.
