About Us 

Room to Heal is a human rights charity and therapeutic community based in London. We support refugees and asylum seekers who have survived torture, trafficking and other gross human rights abuses to rebuild their lives in exile through an integrated programme of therapeutic and casework assistance. At the heart of our work lies the cultivation of community, through which our members can restore meaningful relationships with themselves and others, overcoming the legacy of their traumatic experiences. We have over 100 members from 30 different countries.

About the role 

Fridays are an occasion for our community to enjoy a meal, sit by the fire and be together as a group outside our office space. We meet in the beautiful Culpeper Community Garden at 3pm, and our members cook a meal with the help of our volunteers.  We are currently looking for an experienced gardener to help us develop a small garden plot at Culpeper garden in Angel.

The gardening will take place between 3pm and 4.30pm, following which our meal will be served. You are welcome to stay for our freshly cooked dinner.

As a garden volunteer working with vulnerable people we will ask you do complete a DBS check.

This is an exciting opportunity to get involved with our community and develop a new project. You will be working as a team with our members and volunteers, although you will be leading the gardening project on your own whilst our volunteers and chef of the day prepare our evening meal.

Your tasks will include:
