We are commissioned by Richmond Council to provide support to environmental groups in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. We will use our expertise and experience to help your group, whether you are setting up, establishing a new project, expanding your group, seeking funding or other resources, or need help with a problem. We also have a bank of resources dedicated to helping local groups. Our ability to support groups elsewhere is limited.
We provide best practice guidelines for volunteers, covering health and safety, insurance, first aid and risk assessment and other guidance if you hold volunteer workdays. We can also help you find specialist services, such as legal aid, and can help you recruit volunteers through social media, our website and by placing adverts on the National Volunteering Database Do-it.
