Welcome to Reach Volunteering. We are a community and registered charity that connects people, skills and good causes.

To apply for this role, and any other on our platform, you need to be based in the UK, have at least three years of experience using the skills you wish to volunteer in a professional capacity or have lived experience (for trustee roles). Read more about our criteria.

Do you want to help transform London into a city with less pollution, fewer cars and a safe environment for walking and cycling?

What will you be doing?

At CPRE London we campaign to save and promote green spaces in Greater London and make London a better, greener, and healthier place for everyone to live in, work in and enjoy.

We are part of the national network of CPRE, the countryside charity.

We’re looking for a volunteer to support the London Healthy Streets Scorecard project. This highly influential project, now in its fifth year, is led by a coalition of major London and national environment and transport charities. It promotes six key actions we want London boroughs to take – and we publish data each year to show how they’re doing.

We’re looking for someone who can help make this project even more influential by supporting our Project Manager with tasks ranging from research and PR to communications, policy, and campaigning work. Ultimately what we need is someone who can help us ensure local borough councilors and officers feel public pressure.

What are we looking for?

  • Enthusiasm and commitment to the environment and 'healthy streets' agenda / understanding of the issues
  • Experience in campaigning / communications; public relations (PR); research
  • Good written communication skills
  • Good IT skills
  • Familiarity with managing social media accounts and website content

What difference will you make?

Your impact in this role work on key environmental projects across London will help CPRE London to move closer to being a zero-carbon city, help strengthen biodiversity, and nurture nature for the good of wildlife and Londoners
