Growing Together

Community Partnerships

Global Connections

Since the Green Centre project began in 2006, when it was known as the Green Workshop, the project has been run entirely by volunteers. Our volunteering program has become increasingly popular and in 2015 we developed a more formal program.

Growing Together

The growing together program focuses on individuals seeking opportunties to acquire or improve work skills and/or gain work experience and those with an interest in the environment. This program falls in to 3 broad categories;

  1. Environmentalists, e.g. we welcome volunteers who wish to pursue their love of the environment and/ or follow a career in this field. 
  2. Work seekers, e.g. we welcome volunteers who receive Job Seekers Allowance (JSA), Work Related Activity Group ESA (WRAG) and Support Group ESA.
  3. Health Seekers, e.g we welcome volunteers with chronic illness, mental health problems and learning disabilties.

If you would like to explore volunteering with us please contact us for an informal chat or e-mail us through our website. 

Partnerships

The Partnership program focuses on building relationships within the local community and seeks to offer opportunities to learn about an holistic approach to caring for the environment. This program falls into 3 broad categories;

  1. Business, e.g. we have worked with American Express and Coca Cola
  2. Education, e.g. we have worked with Brighton University and St Johns College
  3. Training, e.g. we have worked with Prince's Trust and National Citizen Service (NCS)

If you would like to spend time at the centre and learn more about our holistic approach to caring for the environment please contact the centre on 01273 687700

Global Connections

The Global Connections program focuses on relationships around the globe so that we may celebrate diversity, share ideas and stengthen the sense of the global family. We have enjoyed working with the following organisations;

  1. Concordia International - an organisation providing opportunities for International volunteers.
  2. DSC Regen and Rey Europe - an organisation providing internships for Italian citizens.
  3. Global Hearts Against Poverty - an organisation in Kenya who we do voluntary work for.
