Step-up to the board of this charity providing horticultural therapy

Trustee / Committee volunteers needed for Green Health Thames Valley in RG2

Green Health Thames Valley is a small charity that provides horticultural therapy support for people with mental health challenges. Operating in our small community garden in Whitley we now require trustees to help us set the strategic direction of the charity. We expect demand for our services to increase as more people struggle with mental health challenges as a consequence of COVID-19.

We are particularly interested in hearing from people who have experience in mental health or general medical/health settings and those from a marketing and fundraising background. Previous trustee experience is not essential as training is available.

We welcome people from all walks of life with a diverse range of experiences and backgrounds and look forward to hearing what relevant experiences you may be able to bring to GHTV.
