Compassion in World Farming

Mission Statement

Compassion in World Farming was founded 50 years ago in 1967 by a British farmer who became horrified by the development of modern, intensive factory farming.

Today we campaign peacefully to end all factory farming practices. We believe that the biggest cause of cruelty on the planet deserves a focused, specialised approach – so we are relentlessly focused on ending factory farming.

Green Hub Project for Teens

Like all community organisations, volunteers sit at the heart of what we do, so naturally we are really keen to talk to you if you have an interest in teenagers, mental health, or gardening. Or even all three!

Of course, spending time in the garden with our teenage volunteers is super important but there are other roles too, depending on your skills – we’ve listed some key roles that we are currently hoping to fill below. Whether it’s one of these, or something else you’d be interested in doing with us, your first step is to complete the simple form and we will be in touch with you to discuss the options.

 

Mission Statement

The Green Hub Project for Teens is a local community project serving Surrey & Hampshire and surrounding areas. It supports young people (11-18) facing social, emotional and mental health challenges, along with their families and carers. In addition, Green Hub works to promote awareness and understanding of mental health and emotional wellbeing for young people in the broader community.

Green Hub’s purpose is to achieve positive, measurable outcomes for teen mental health, including self-love, active lifestyles, social interaction and inclusion, as well as the development and application of a range of learned skills. Green Hub achieves this through its Teen Garden  social prescribing programme, talks and support groups within the local community, along with sharing useful information via the website.
