Happy New Year from the CJS Team.
Once it got going 2021 turned out to be a very busy one for us here at CJS, we published more adverts than for many years and we're hoping 2022 will bring as many opportunities for everyone across our sector.
As for the last couple of years the CJS Team are all working from home on flexible hours, the team is normally available between ten and four but you may receive responses at other times. We've already been very busy: the first CJS Weekly of the year (last Friday) had 102 adverts for vacancies, plus 14 for voluntary roles. Which makes this seem an appropriate time to remind you about advertising jobs with CJS! [more]

CSH Nature Recovery Rangers at the NHS By Athene Reiss, Green Space for Health Partnerships Project Manager
In April 2021, three ‘Nature Recovery Rangers’ were embedded at NHS trusts in Liverpool, London and Bristol by the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare (CSH). These rangers embody the seed of an idea that could transform the management and use of green spaces on healthcare sites in the UK and further afield. At the time, we weren’t sure exactly what the work of the rangers would look like on the ground. Nine months later, we can see that it looks like many varied improvements to green and blue spaces and a wide range of engagement with them by patients and staff. It looks like wellbeing enhancements for nature and people developing side by side. [more]
A plastic free future… By Mike Appleton, Plastic Free Woodlands Officer at Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust
Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust’s Plastic Free Woodlands project has already made significant progress in removing redundant plastic tree guards from the Yorkshire Dales landscape, championing alternatives, and highlighting the issue of plastics in forestry nationally. It has been suggested that a staggering 50 million trees per year need to be planted to counteract Britain’s contribution to climate change. As trees are often planted using plastic tubes that could mean that up to 1.5 billion plastic tubes could end up littering our environment and damaging ecosystems by 2050. [more]
Next Edition: CJS on Volunteering, our annual look at volunteering is this year in affiliation with the Association of Volunteer Managers and is due for publication on 28 February 2022. We're accepting adverts for this edition now. More information here
In last year's survey readers asked for us to start including Rural Regeneration, perhaps you were one of them there were a lot of you, so the first news items on this topic are including for the first time. You also asked for some more light hearted, upbeat news and we're trying to add some of that too - it's not always easy to find, this month we finish with the RSPCA's top rescues of 2021 including a greedy badger stuck in a bin. This month includes the main stories and headlines from over the festive break and consequently there are several end of year reviews and reports and as it's January and every one is making lots of healthy resolutions there are stories on recreation, health and volunteering too.
Calendar of events and short courses occurring in March 2022 plus additions made over the past month.
