Would you like to play a key part in achieving positive change for people’s health and nature’s recovery in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw?

We are seeking to fill 1 or 2 new posts to lead development work towards the expansion of Green Prescribing to improve people’s mental wellbeing through participation in nature based activities.

Working on behalf of a broad partnership of health sector, statutory and voluntary organisations and employed by Sheffield & Rotherham Wildlife Trust (SRWT) you will lead development work, to include scoping, mapping and consultation activities in order to better understand access to green space and nature based activities in different communities and to support project partners in co-design of pathways and projects to increase provision and uptake of green prescribing.

We are looking for candidates with experience of nature based wellbeing activities and community consultation and co-design.
