You will use a range of outreach methods to grow and sustain the groups and arrange for regular meetings to promote group cohesion. You will support local residents to design and deliver a range of projects, primarily at the gardens on station platforms. The projects aim to green transport corridors, build community spirit, and improve health and wellbeing throughout the borough of Lewisham.

You will have experience working on, or participating in, community projects. You will also have good knowledge of the services and activities available in the borough. You will be highly organised and have a willingness to learn new things. Above all, you have a strong desire to support local people to make lasting change in their borough.
