Our mission is to improve the lives of local people coping with or recovering from mental or physical ill health. We have a dedicated team who are vital to making this happen as well as ensuring our continued success.

What it is like to work here

We think Sydenham Garden is a great place to work. The garden itself is beautiful, especially in the Summer months, and we are all committed to delivering the mission of the charity for local people. We are continuously striving to improve our work, so it is always busy, but there is a fantastic sense of teamwork with staff and volunteers working together to get things done.

Everyone who works here has a voice and a stake in the charity’s work and progress.

Developing talent

We are fully committed to providing training and development opportunities for all team and promoting a culture of lifelong learning.
