Do you want to join our committee?

We are looking for new people to join our committee

You would work with other volunteers and trustees who are part of the committee but ideally focus on one of the following as well as other areas you are interested in:

  • Managing enquiries: We need an additional volunteer to help keep on top of our email inbox, responding to questions from park users and local organisations.
  • Volunteer co-ordination: This would involve working with existing committee members and partners to help co-ordinate our practical volunteering (e.g. gardening, litter-picking, events) including health and safety.
  • Engagement: We are looking for a committee member to take a lead on outreach and engagement with different park user groups and communities, with a particular focus on equality, diversity and inclusion.
  • Reporting: You would work with the trustees to pull together our annual report and making sure our details are up to date with the Charity Commission.

There is flexibility to share roles between different people depending on skills and interests and to get involved in other activities. We’re also interested to hear from people who might be able to help at particular times but can’t commit to joining the committee.

“Volunteering for FoRP is a great way to get involved in my local community. I have made friends, learnt new skills, and I feel even more connected to our special park” – FoRP committee member.
