Emma Sutcliffe, Community Manager, Aldershot Military Museum:
‘The Resilience Garden’ project will engage men from both the Armed Forces and civilian communities to design, create and maintain a community garden at Aldershot Military Museum. The project will bring participants together to support their own mental health recovery, developing personal and social resilience through collaborative, supported activity.
The project will bring people together to share experiences, skills and knowledge, breaking down preconceptions between communities and finding common ground in their mental health journeys. Once the garden is complete, the aim is for participants to become peer mentors and volunteers, encouraging their wider networks to join them in utilising the garden for mental health support; continuing shared learning, and development, as well as improving community integration through shared common ground.
We are looking for an inspirational project coordinator who has the ability to work in partnership with local communities, health services and the MOD to develop and deliver this year-long project. The ideal candidate will have a community-focused background, have strong project management experience and have the knowledge and expertise to deliver this exciting project.
