Change Grow Live Allotment Volunteer in Stockport, United Kingdom

Join our great team at Stockport Change Grow Live and support our service users whilst benefiting from the great outdoors and growing our own veg!

Change Grow Live, Stockport has partnered with other local services to share the management of an allotment plot, located at Whitehill allotments in South Reddish. We have a time slot of two hours per week, currently on a Monday from 1pm until 3pm (excluding bank holidays). During this time, we attend the allotment and complete agreed tasks to maintain the allotment and to produce vegetables, herbs and flowers.

This project is a valuable offer to our service users as it enables them to connect with other people, spend time outdoors and engage in physical activity, all of which is beneficial in recovery.

The Allotment Volunteer is responsible for attending the allotment, welcoming the service users, assigning tasks, ensuring health and safety is complied with, and engaging the service users in the activity. There may also be some promotion work to encourage service users to attend this project. As the allotment requires regular maintenance it is essential that the volunteer can commit to attend the allotment ever Monday (excluding holidays and sickness/ reasonable absence) so that the project can remain successful and consistent.
