'Committed to the conservation of native amphibians and reptiles and their natural environment by supporting the development of a network of independent volunteer amphibian and reptile groups ... Each Group works with the species in its locality, and these provide the "grass roots" of native herpetofauna conservation in the UK; undertaking survey and monitoring, practical conservation tasks, public events and outreach and liaising with stakeholders including local planning authorities, land owners, other conservation bodies, and the wider public.'

'Dedicated to the protection, preservation, study and appreciation of Scotland’s historic buildings ... We have around 1000 members throughout Scotland and beyond, with six regional groups organising local activities and carrying out casework. We are supported by a fantastic network of volunteers without whom we could not operate.'

'Supports local bat groups across the UK and over 6000 members. We work with volunteers, scientists, industry and government both locally and nationally on a range of projects ... Whether you are a bat-beginner or an expert you are sure to find an event to interest you ... Year round the Bat Conservation Trust, local bat groups as well as conservation and community organisations arrange bat events across the UK from training courses to bat walks for families.'

'Formed in 1990 to serve the needs of those interested in family history who lived in what was then Central Region. The Society covers the old counties of Clackmannanshire, Stirlingshire and West Perthshire, including the parishes of Bo'ness and Carriden which were in West Lothian ... The Society aims to cater for members who wish to pursue further their existing knowledge, or provide support for those wishing to begin their research. Regular meetings are held in Stirling, where expert speakers deal with aspects of genealogy and local history.'
