Are you a friendly person who enjoys meeting lots of new people? Why not become the welcoming face of the Forth Environment Link Community Hub?
Forth Environment Link are looking for volunteers who would like to staff the welcome desk and be the first point of call for people coming into the building. You would deal with face to face queries, answer the phone and help the team with some administration tasks.
Ideally, a small team of volunteers would work together to cover the reception hours of 1030-330 Wed/Thurs/Fri, we would be happy to have a chat about how your availability could fit with the role.

Organisation aims and objectives

Forth Environment Link (FEL) works with communities and partners across Forth Valley on environmental and food issues. Covering the local authority areas of Stirling, Clackmannanshire and Falkirk, FEL combines environmental education and awareness with project support through the Stirling Cycle Hub; Grow Forth, local food initiative; Forth Valley Orchards programme and the Zero Waste Communities project. FEL began in 1989 with the aim of teaching children about biodiversity and nature. In response to community need and interest, the organisation grew in both mandate and geography, expanding to include adult education and demonstration projects. 2008 Forth Valley Food Links merged with FEL, bringing an additional focus on sustainable local food production and consumption. In 2013 Stirling Cycle Hub was formed to increase awareness and participation in cycling and cycling related activities in the area.
