Trustees

Voluntary positions, 3-year term

Growing Well is seeking to recruit at least two experienced trustees who can lead the organisation through its transformation from single site to group status. Our new board of trustees will continue to build on the brilliant work already done to strengthen our governance and shape our strategic direction.

We are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals with experience of:

  • Mental health services – governance, management and networks
  • NHS – commissioning, governance and networks
  • West Cumbria – business networks and nuclear supply chain

In return for this voluntary role, you will gain the extremely rewarding experience that charity trusteeship can offer, including leadership, governance and strategic input, as well as the satisfaction of supporting a vibrant charity with a wonderful cause.

We will be accepting applications throughout July and August until 4pm on Friday 30th August 2024, and interviews will take place in September.

Support Volunteers

Growing Well West Cumbria, Egremont

1 day per week, Monday through to Thursdays, 9am to 4pm

  • Are you passionate about people?
  • Can you lend a hand to support them to recover and move on with their lives?
  • Do you love the outdoors, nature and growing food to eat?

For every day session we run at Beck Green Nursery, Egremont, there are up to 15 participants at any given time, supervised by two staff members.

Each session also needs 2 x volunteers to support our staff in this work; sometimes helping individuals with additional needs to participate with the group, sometimes just mucking in to get planting and harvesting done and dusted for our Crop Share veg box customers.

Always being part of an awesome team that works together, achieves amazing things and leaves no one behind.

Full mental health risk and safeguarding training will be provided – no prior experience necessary – and you’ll be supported by a team of professional staff to deliver your role. Plus, PPE, a hot, healthy lunch and all the tea and biscuits you need are included.

If you can spare the time to support those in your community in most need of help, we’d love to hear from you.
