The Conservation Volunteers – The Community Volunteering Charity

Every day TCV works across the UK to create healthier and happier communities for everyone - communities where our activities have a lasting impact on people’s health, prospects and outdoor places.

About the role:

This role is a 2 ½ year project to support community groups to take action on woodland management and tree planting in their local greenspaces - through training, resources, mentoring and co-leading occasional practical work.

The post holder will work with the London Wildlife Trust and volunteers to test and refine a London Woodland Condition Assessment Survey and begin using it to collect information to aid London’s woodland landowners with site management. There will also be collaboration with Trees for Cities to provide community volunteering opportunities accessible to Generation Tree youth participants.

We are looking for someone who will proactively engage with volunteer groups and share an enthusiasm for improved woodland management in London.

A bit more about us:

We recognise that each community and the people living there have different needs. Whether improving wellbeing, conserving a well-loved outdoor space or bringing people together to promote social cohesion and combat loneliness, TCV works together with communities to deliver practical solutions to the real life challenges they face.

For over 50 years we have adapted our work with volunteers to reflect the changing needs of communities in the UK and, by giving people a sense of purpose and belonging, we have empowered them to take control of their lives and outdoor spaces for the benefit of all.

Whilst our activities vary, our inclusive approach has remained consistent; bringing people and places together to create happy, healthy and connected communities for everyone.

Join in, Feel good.
