Contacts for Representatives and Mentors

Along with their role on the Society’s Management Board, NAS Regional Representatives deal with local member issues and offer support to sites under threat of disposal. Regional Representatives are supported in their role by the Allotment Mentors and both can offer advice and support around issues such as:

  • where to go for funding
  • how to set up an association
  • becoming self-managed
  • disability access
  • different ways to promote your plots
  • working with community groups
  • what to do about security concerns
  • setting up an allotment project.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch.
