About the trust

About Gloucester Civic Trust

Gloucester Civic Trust was established in 1972

We actively encourage the appreciation and conservation of Gloucester’s heritage and are a major force in the promotion of city tourism. We aim to ensure that regeneration programmes respect and complement Gloucester’s diverse past.

We are an independent charity run by volunteers. Our income comes from subscriptions, donations and guided tours. We work closely with local residents’ groups and businesses to encourage vibrant communities. Our projects help to improve the quality of life of local people, as well as educating both residents and visitors about our city’s rich culture and history.

We want Gloucester to be a pleasant place to visit, and a safe and clean city for all those who live and work here.



Gloucester Civic Trust is made up of a number of committees, each of which has its own specialist role.

Members are encouraged to get involved in local issues and projects and to make a difference.

The committees – which all report to the Council of Management – play an important role in delivering our heritage programmes.

Our work is rewarding, interesting and exciting.

Anyone can join Gloucester Civic Trust and our members indeed come from all walks of life.

They are encouraged to involve themselves in local issues and projects and to make a difference.
