If you are passionate about the New Forest, you might like to apply to become a member of the New Forest Access Forum.
The independent group of volunteers which advises New Forest organisations about improving access and accessibility is looking for people to represent the following topics: walking, dog walking, cycling, equestrians, disabled access, health and wellbeing, access to water, tourism, local businesses, youth & education, commoning, landowning and volunteering.
It’s especially welcoming applications from under-represented groups who can connect to new audiences from different communities, ages, backgrounds, experiences and identities.
Members of the New Forest Access Forum serve a three-year term, representing a particular topic and bringing their personal experience to advise New Forest organisations how best to improve public access within the National Park and the wider New Forest District Council area.
The forum is an independent advisory body, operating on a statutory basis. Its appointing authorities are Hampshire County Council and the New Forest National Park Authority
Members meet four times a year, often out on site in the New Forest. All travel expenses are covered as are any for childcare or care of dependents. If you have additional needs the forum will be pleased to accommodate them.
To apply please download the application form available from www.newforestaccessforum.org.uk and email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 April. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an online/phone interview.
For questions about membership of the forum and its role, please contact Adam Vasey, National Park access ranger, at email@example.com or call 07384 517633 for an informal chat.
