We are a volunteer-run charity working to ensure our park is well cared for and maintained and has a planned and healthy future. We raise money to improve the park and organise a regular programme of events and activities. We have been a registered charity since 2016 and work closely with Lambeth Council and others.
Our aims are:
- To work collaboratively with the park’s landlord, Lambeth Council, and its tenants, to help their management to maximise all aspects of the quality of Ruskin Park, as desired by park users and within available resources.
- To engage park users and the wider community in maintaining and improving the park for their own health and wellbeing, for now and in the future, and balancing their different interests.
- To run, sponsor or support specific desired events and activities for and with park users, and capital projects for improvement of physical assets, that would not otherwise happen.
- To ensure we have the resources to achieve the above aims – financial, people, communications and governance
Our work helps ensure our park is well cared for and maintained, and has a planned and healthy future, preserving it for future generations.
We look for enthusiastic people who are committed to the park and willing to invest their time, skills and energy in our work. Our volunteers should be community minded, kind and able to work as part of a team.
