Community Partnerships

Community Partnerships

The Community Development programme across the parks in Kingston is well established and will be improved under Glendale. Our dedicated Community Development Manager, Zee Nash is available to support your amazing projects in parks, open spaces and neighbourhoods throughout the borough.

Zee holds a degree in Cities, Environment, Design and Development and specialises in Holistic-Ergonomic Community Consultation with significant experience in community development activities and can support groups with the development of risk assessments, toolbox talks and basic training.

Zee is supported by the Glendale management team who will engage with groups and individuals to identify and develop suitable project activities for volunteers at a group and individual level.

Zee is the first point of contact for any groups and individuals who wish to express an interest in community and volunteer activities.

Zee will support new and emerging groups to develop their organisational structures and constitutions where required. If your local park is currently unsupported by a community group, and you would like to get involved, then Zee would love to hear from you.

Below are the currently active groups within our parks. Please contact Zee who will be delighted to introduce new members to these groups.
