Community Commons is a project run by the Trust that aims to work with local landowners, commoners and stakeholders and increase their awareness of wildlife on commons and their involvement in its conservation. A generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund underpins the project, with additional funding obtained from the Trust, English Nature and the Herefordshire Council.

The aim of the work is to improve the conservation (grazing) management of the commons, working in partnership with commoners and local communities. The project has some money to help with capital works and has helped establish management associations.
