Board of Trustees

Our trustees are responsible for overseeing the strategic direction of the Centre and ensuring the effective management and administration of our activities. Since the Centre is a company limited by guarantee, our trustees are also our directors.

They come from a range of backgrounds and bring a variety of skills, experience and expertise, including nature conservation and biodiversity professionals, people with a business or marketing background, Swansea’s Councillor Champion for Natural Environment and Biodiversity and individuals with a strong interest in the environment and our work.

Would you be interested in helping with the running of the Environment Centre? If so, then why not join us as a trustee?

Volunteers

Our team of volunteers is integral and without them we could not provide the services we do. They cover a wide range of tasks and roles at the Centre, some helping on a regular basis, others supporting specific events or projects.

There is a rota for volunteers who meet and greet members of the public when they visit the Centre, serve in the shop, and act as phone reception. We also have volunteers who help with maintenance, gardening, administration and events.

Do you have a spare afternoon or a morning a week? Do you enjoy meeting and helping people? If you fancy joining us as a volunteer, we will refund your travel expenses and offer you relevant training, in-house and through Swansea Council for Voluntary Service.

If you are interested in volunteering at the Environment Centre please see the list of opportunities on the ‘Support Us’ page under ‘Volunteering’.
