Sarah's story

Posted on 27 November 2013

How Sarah's experience as a Groundwork Volunteer Project Assistant led to even bigger things...

The VPA programme is a 12-week volunteer scheme run by Groundwork Oldham & Rochdale  for graduates and adults who would like to gain experience of working in the environmental or regeneration sector. Each team has up to 14 members who will work in different departments of Groundwork or partner organisations as well as working on our nature sites to gain a Certificate in Practical Countryside Skills.

Volunteers work on practical conservation, education projects working in schools, community engagement, heritage projects, health and wellbeing, youth work, community development, fundraising, and advancing the skills and volunteer opportunities available to the local community.
