St Nicks

Building for a Greener York

St Nicks works for a sustainable York. We need a new low-impact building so that we can better support local people in increasing connections with wildlife and the environment. It will enable us to continue our journey to inspire, train and equip the community to address environmental challenges.

Our capacity to support the community face & address environmental challenges is constrained by the size & flexibility of our current building. Demand for our engagement, conservation, wellbeing & educational work in the city is growing. Without additional facilities we can’t fully meet this extra demand. We need more space for visitors, volunteers & staff, & to showcase current replicable sustainable design principles. Our current space now makes it difficult to further develop our impact.


The Big Give will kick start our fundraising for a new building, supporting St Nicks to deliver a space for York to engage with & improve the city’s environment. We will increase our facilities for volunteers, our projects & education & create a sustainable, natural-build multi-use building renovation & extension. We will take a public training-based & inclusive approach to the new space, engaging the community in transferable & innovative ways to build sustainably & improve existing buildings
