Land Trust Annual Review 2021: Green Angels

2nd February 2022

The Land Trust’s Green Angels programme which provides free environmental training and education makes a huge difference to the lives of our trainees, helping many into further education and employment.

Since launching Green Angels in 2013 thousands of trainees have enjoyed our courses, while the Land Trust has also benefited hugely from the dedication and commitment of our Green Angels, who make a huge difference to our sites.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Trust had to suspend many of our activities or run them at vastly reduced numbers to ensure they were safe. However we were acutely aware that many of our Green Angels trainees relied on our activities for their physical and mental wellbeing so our team worked incredibly hard to engage with our trainees and support them through this challenging time.

Throughout the first period of lockdown the team produced fantastic newsletters packed full of activities and ideas for trainees to complete from the safety of their own home or gardens or while taking their daily exercise. These mailings have continued on a monthly basis and aim to keep people focusing positively on their local environment through activities, information and virtual networking.

Socially distanced Green Angels activity

We also introduced Green Angels weekly online coffee mornings which ran until the end of March 2021.

As Covid-19 restrictions eased at various stages some activities were able to be resumed in person, with limited numbers and appropriate social distancing measures in place. Our Green Angels team and trainees adapted and made a success of the very challenging scenarios placed in front of them.
