About Us

 

                                                            WHAT is SGWI?

 

          Its a  voluntary run and independent, UK based networking hub

                        that is focused around 3 main root subjects-

 

                                      Environmental & Ecological issues.

                                                                   

                                             Ancient and Sacred Sites.

 

                                                 Health and Wellbeing.

 

                                   Via this site we hope to assist the many

                                                 Groups and Individuals

                       who champion the various issues seemingly alone.

 

 At  SGWI

       You can access guidance from advocates re protecting ancient monuments and sacred sites, and welfare, health, and Human Rights issues.

                                                       

            You can also find information on environmental and conservation policy in practice and "how to" access appropriate legal and governmental information.   Very useful for those challenging planning applications that threaten local habitats with pollution and other concerns you may have.                                                         

           Find support at SGWI and link up with other voluntary co-workers,

sharing ideas and experience.  who are widely experienced  in  research, planning and management.    This includes local and national groups with experts and professionals who can assist you.

  Find out how to set up local groups and find volunteers

         using the  media, websites and our network facility.

                  Our work is networked and shared with the public freely

Become a local contact of Sacred Grove Western Isles, informing us of issues/problems.

 

Start a local group to work and campaign on issues and concerns, ie. litterpicking and monitoring woods, streams, beaches and liaising with  other eco groups.

 

Visit/write to local councils, agencies and organisations to liaise/research developments which may encroach or endanger wildlife, or result in loss of  habitat, damage historical  or ancient  landscape; museums re: relics, etc.

 

Join the Woodland Trust and Tree Council and help care for your local trees

Refer high profile cases to us so that we can monitor and refer on to ‘ESAI’ and environmental experts/lawyers.
