New Trustees wanted at Community Forest Trust

24 Aug 2020 - 14:17 by michelle.foster

community forest trustCommunity Forest Trust are currently seeking to recruit up to four further trustees to join their board to help take the organisation through the next few years of dynamic and exciting change, expansion of operations and on-the-ground delivery.

This is a great opportunity to contribute to a high-profile agenda and inform the delivery of national programmes of tree planting.

Community Forest Trust (CFT) is the national champion for community forests in England and provides a voice for community forestry organisations that are working to plant trees, bring woodland back into use and connect people to the natural world.

Currently CFT is directly supporting The Mersey Forest in North Cheshire and Merseyside, City of Trees in Greater Manchester, White Rose Forest in the Leeds City Region and Heywoods in Kingston upon Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. One of their signature programmes is the Northern Forest plan to plant millions of trees across the North.

In addition, CFT supports other community forests across England by helping to administer grants and offer advice and support. CFT is currently working with the entire network of ten community forests across England to launch a major new programme of tree planting to address climate change, which will also lead to the establishment of at least three further community forests in 2020/21.

Community Forest Trust are particularly encouraging applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates who are underrepresented in the organisation. If you would like to discuss this further, email Iain Taylor at: iain@cf-trust.org

Community Forest Trust are operating on a rolling recruitment basis interviewing candidates as they come forward.
