We each have our own board of trustees who are responsible for how we are run.

Colchester Mind offers volunteer positions and paid positions.

They offer training in mental health awareness.

We are a one-stop shop for all matters related to the environment, providing a focal point for the gathering and exchange of information on one of the most important issues of the day; the environment.

We are well known for supporting Colchester and Wivenhoe Farmers Markets, as well as RePaint Essex, a paint recycling scheme, and ReUse Essex, a great way to reuse rather than reject unwanted goods. Green Open Days are also high on our agenda, along with a lot of other great projects aimed at helping inform, educate and assist those looking to choose a greener path.
