Title: Jonathan Rich

I started my career with the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers in 2003 supporting young people to volunteer with nature conservation projects in south Wiltshire.  As a Volunteer Development Officer for Wiltshire Council I was invited to study a post graduate diploma in youth and community studies.  One of my placements involved supporting Jaki Farrell and her team with the initial stages of the Sowing Seeds project.

I was invited to join the Seeds4Success board of trustees once my placement and degree was complete.   It has been great to witness the development of Seeds4Success, from an idea of a project in a funding bid to an organisation that is now recognised by the Charity Commission and that is supported and shaped by local young people.

I currently work for the Macular Society, a charity supporting people with central vision loss, where I manage volunteers and develop volunteer opportunities in the north of England.  I live within the area covered by Seeds4Success and I spend much of my spare time running, cycling and walking in the countryside that makes the local area so special.
