Our Community

We are a unique and vibrant community project which shares opportunity, experiences and hospitality from a beautiful outdoor setting.

The project offers people the chance to be part of a fully embracing community where you are the best you can be. Somewhere you have a sense of ownership, of purpose, somewhere you simply belong. People have the time and space to gain confidence, self-esteem and a real sense of belief in themselves and what they achieve.

We work with a number of partnerships which currently include schools, charities, businesses, voluntary and statutory organisations, to provide individuals and groups the opportunity to contribute and take part in a wide variety of activities.

We are always keen to explore and develop further partnerships. If you have an idea or initiative, you would like to discuss with us please contact Sue Beard, Community Engagement Lead on 07852768597 or email: enquiries@sjog.org.uk

“We believe that people working together in a strong community and a shared goal and a common purpose can make the impossible possible.”

We currently have in excess of 25 regular volunteers who support the work of the project. They are all of varied talents and skills – from gardeners, to art and craft experts, to builders, and admin whizzies! Each person helps in the running and development of the project. Our volunteers regularly give their time each week in variety of ways and also help to get involved with the planning and delivery of our community events.

We hold a number of volunteer information evenings throughout the year. This is an opportunity to tell potential volunteers about the work the charity does and the various roles that volunteers can undertake at the project.

If you want to know more about volunteering at Digswell, please contact us. Or check out our Facebook page for the date of our next volunteering evening.
