Partnership

The Roost Partnership is a unique conservation-lead built environment scheme involving Bat Conservation Trust (BCT) and bat box or access product manufacturers (Partners) working together to provide bat conservation features that can be incorporated onto and into buildings and other structures that are designed with the latest best practice guidance and research knowledge in mind.

The Roost Partnership does not endorse particular products but rather promotes the important working relationship between BCT and Partners in a common goal of improving roosting opportunities for bats within our built environment. The Roost Partnership also acts as an information sharing hub used to gather feedback from industry professionals to constantly improve our understanding of bat roosting requirements.

Partners in the scheme (shown below) will receive support and marketing equally through the scheme and all partners will contribute 10% of sales of the scheme product/s to the BCT on a quarterly basis. This funding will supports the scheme and is invested in projects that further our knowledge of the efficacy of bat conservation features.

If you are interested in joining to scheme or would like to know more, please email roost@bats.org.uk

Integrated Bat Boxes

Green & Blue's Integrated Bat Block was entered into the Roost Partnership because this "will ensure that we are designing appropriate products that really will suit intended species, such as our wonderful bats, and will help us to raise awareness and to educate on overall biodiversity measures."

Bat Access Products

Just Lead's Bat Access Tile design was refined through working with the Roost Partnership because "Giving the bats access points at roof level creating a safe haven for them to reside means everything to us and gives us a piece of mind knowing we are doing something to help the bats.”
