Groundwork London is a leading social and environmental regeneration charity delivering over 500 projects each year, many of which support young people to achieve their goals through meaningful interventions which amplify their voice and increase their involvement in volunteering and social action.
As part of Groundwork’s expanding Youth programme, we are recruiting a part-time Wellbeing Coach to support our innovative open access mental wellbeing service, The Nest in Southwark.
