Expressions of interest invited for trustee roles

Campaign for National Parks believes that National Parks are essential to the nation’s health and well-being and an important part of our natural and cultural heritage. The Parks provide an escape from the stresses of everyday life and opportunities for a wide range of recreational activities. But they are also ‘living landscapes’, home to diverse communities and they make a significant contribution to the economy through tourism, farming and other related businesses.

While millions of people visit the National Parks every year and significant public benefits are delivered by these inspirational areas, they also face threats. This means that the role of Campaign for National Parks, as the unique charity providing an independent voice for the 13 National Parks in England and Wales, is more important than ever.

Could you help us work to protect these iconic landscapes from threats and to make sure that they are open to everyone to enjoy?

We are always interested in hearing from people who would be interested in getting more involved in helping us achieve our mission of inspiring everyone to look after and enjoy National Parks.

We expect all of our trustees to be strategic and forward thinking to help the organisation achieve its mission. In addition to that, we are particularly keen to hear from people with expertise in communications and marketing and/or campaigning and lobbying.
