Opportunity to become a Charter Branch Lead
The Woodland Trust is one of the UK’s leading conservation charities. We have over 500,000 members and supporters and more than 1,000 sites all over the UK. We believe life’s better with trees. We protect and campaign on behalf of the UK’s woods, plant more trees, and restore ancient woodland, for the benefit of wildlife and people.
The Woodland Trust is leading forward the Charter for Trees, Woods and People (The Tree Charter) following its launch in 2017 in response to the crisis facing woods and trees across the UK. The Tree Charter has 10 guiding principles which set out the relationship between people and trees, the role woods and trees play in our lives, and our responsibilities towards them.
This role will support the Woodland Trust to bring the Tree Charter to life in communities across the UK. It provides the opportunity for a lead of a Charter Branch to have access to the Woodland Trust dedicated volunteer website, Whittle. This will allow access to policies; procedures and documents that you can use to support your Group. The Charter Branch Lead will help the Tree Charter Lead at the Woodland Trust to communicate with other Charter Branch members by dispersing information and the monthly E-news to group members.
You will also be able to post articles and share news about your Group’s activities as a ‘Whittle Reporter’. This is optional and training will be provided for this should you want to take up this option.
As with all volunteer roles you will be required to complete an induction. You will have the opportunity to either do this online or to attend an induction event.
