Trustee role

Richmond Park is a special place. It’s not only London’s largest Royal Park, it’s also a National Nature Reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation. And, it’s the quietest and darkest place in London.

For 60 years The Friends of Richmond Park has been promoting its conservation, protection and improvement and educating the public about its special status.

Now with more than 3,500 members, our influence continues to increase through the scale of our volunteering activities, the campaigns we lead, the range of our education activities and the funds we raise to support the park.

The trustees lead and manage the charity. We are seeking additional trustees to join our existing team and to help take the charity forward.

Trustees typically lead on one or more activities of the Friends and more information about the role is found in our Friends Trustee Policy and Role here.

If you love the Park and would like to discuss how you could contribute, please contact the chairman, Roger Hillyer, at
