The Trust is involved with a number of partnerships dealing with all aspects of Geoconservation, Earth Heritage, conservation & green issues in general. The main partnerships we are involved in are the Geology Trusts and the West Midlands Geodiversity Partnership.
The Geopark covers 1250 square kilometres and takes in parts of the four counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire. The Abberley and Malvern Hills is one of 10 Geoparks in the United Kingdom, and one of over 80 Geoparks globally.

The Geopark is currently a partnership of 18 organisations.
