Volunteer Members to the Norfolk Local Access Forum (NLAF)

Vounteer Part time All Year 21-06-2021 No childcare qualifications
The Norfolk Local Access Forum (NLAF) is made up of up to 22 people covering a range of interests in countryside access in Norfolk, including: walking; cycling; horse riding; landowners; conservation; other interests (including health, tourism, business, access for all, heritage, education). The Forum provides independent advice to a number of organisations including Norfolk County Council on improving access to land in Norfolk.

We are looking for enthusiastic and proactive people with a passion for the outdoors with good communication skills to fill 5 vacancies on the Forum. Our current vacancies are for new members who will be able to represent the following interest areas: young people (or those who can represent young people); all abilities access; land at the water’s edge (anglers, boaters, swimmers); BME; health and wellbeing.

Members act for their appointed interest area directly, representing the views of others within their category, and in a wider strategic way. This enables the Norfolk Local Access Forum (NLAF) to offer advice on ‘bigger picture’ access issues in Norfolk such as:
• Improving countryside network connectivity
• Helping tackle climate change
• Improving people’s health
Members are committed to improving access for outdoor recreation and the responsible enjoyment of green spaces. They work objectively and positively with other members of the NLAF and Norfolk County Council officers.

If you have an interest in one of the vacancies we would love to hear from you.

Please email [email protected] if you have any queries or would like paper documents sent to you. The closing date for applications is 21 June 2021.
