The purpose of the Trust is to safeguard the cultural, historical and natural heritage of the Turks and Caicos Islands through the preservation of areas, sites, buildings, structures and objectives of cultural, historical or natural significance.
This charter is further emphasized in the Mission Statement.
The National Trust Ordinance was enacted in 1992. And under this instrument was bestowed power to carry out a number of activities for the furtherance of its purpose.
Preserving and protecting our heritage.
There are five programme areas within the current structure of the National Trust: (1) Public Awareness, Education and Outreach, (2) Membership, (3) Volunteer, (4) Small Business Development, and (5) Youth Empowerment Programme & Internship.
Over the years, the National Trust has faced enormous challenges but has never ceased to achieve its mandate on heritage preservation such as implementing good management practice with relatively limited resources, strong local community participation in the conservation and management of TCI’s heritage sites, and the development of unique multi-faceted conservation schemes – all for the protection of the country’s valuable heritage.
For Everyone, Forever.
The National Trust owns and manages some of our nation's top historical and natural sites, for the continued enjoyment of us and future generations.
