The Elvaston Castle and Gardens Trust (ECGT) is an independent charity and the organisation that will manage the estate through a long-term lease agreement with Derbyshire County Council. This means that Elvaston will always remain in public ownership.

The Trust is working in partnership with Derbyshire County Council to ensure that Elvaston has a sustainable future. Our work and our plans will reverse decades of limited investment and will ensure that future generations are able to enjoy this special place.

As a Charity are governance relies on the work of a group of committed and experienced Board of Trustees. As there is much work to be done, each Trustee plays a very active role in the strategic development, administration and operations of the charity.
