Caplor Perspective

This is Caplor - a small hill in on the border lands between England and Wales. It is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty, encouraging  us to look after our planet for future generations.

At Caplor, our intention is to make a real difference to people’s lives, the lives of the organisations to which they belong and, ultimately, to the wider world. Whoever we work with, we always listen first, we learn from the people involved and - only then - respond with suggestions about how to address needs.

We seek to encourage a new generation of organisations that include both businesses and charities, as long as they share the values that we seek to promote. We start with ourselves. Caplor Horizons is an independent charity that is also part of the Caplor family, which includes three businesses focusing on renewable energy, farming and property.
