Support and guidance provided for team of 50 plus volunteers delivering clubs for children and young people across Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.
A comprehensive review of the existing provision resulted in a a series of recommendations. A key outcome involved compiling a job description and person specification for the recruitment of a Community Wildlife Officer staff role to take the project forward.
External communication with Wildlife Watch members included content planning and editing of quarterly newsletters.
External communication and production of e newsletter for members of the public to inspire engagement with the outdoors and increase attendance at wildlife clubs. Use of the same system, Campaign Monitor, to manage internal communication to volunteer leaders through regular e bulletins.
