Chiswick House and Gardens Trust (CHGT) seeks a Community Participation Manager to help us develop and deliver our strategic partnerships across all our outreach work in the community and build the case for the future funding for our new strategic programme, Growing Together at Chiswick House.
The onset of lockdown caused all our community participation programmes to go dormant. During this time CHGT grew to become a central hub for the local community, with many using our gardens as a place to find peace and enjoy the outdoors. Our new programme will be primarily in the Kitchen Garden, but also extend into the Grounds and in the longer-term Chiswick House itself. The programme will focus on health and wellbeing.
