Since starting in 2019 TreeAction have delivered 7 school projects in Sussex, buying and planting 20 - 50 trees in each school from funds we raised ourselves. The students are then caring for those trees as part of their forest school activities, giving them more connection with the environment. 

Tree Action are looking for more Directors to help grow and continue our work. We are a Community Interest Company (a not for profit similar to a charity or social enterprise). This is a voluntary role and we are looking for someone who can commit around 2 days a week with a monthly catch up with the Directors.

We are looking for someone with a passion for the environment and supporting children's mental well being through tree planting and maintenance projects and outdoor learning.

  • Able to work with a wide range of partners and stakeholders including corporate supporters, council parks teams, councilors, families, teachers and volunteers.

Benefits

  • Opportunity to connect with individuals who are driving the sustainability agenda and supporting the mental well-being of young people.
