About the organisation
Myatt’s Fields Park is a beautiful small Victorian park in Lambeth, supported by the charity Myatt’s Fields Park Project (MFPP).
MFPP’s purpose is to develop and protect the park as a haven of wellbeing for our urban neighbourhood. We do this through managing the park’s horticulture for biodiversity as well as organising volunteering and offering events, food, wellbeing, education and enterprise projects that meet the needs of our diverse area. We see the park as a true community hub, welcoming people of all ages and backgrounds.
MFPP was started by a group of park users in 2000, becoming a charity in 2002. In the past we spearheaded a £3 million renovation of the park, providing a new playground, wildlife area, children’s building and toilets. We've grown food and cooked hundreds of meals in our community greenhouse and kitchen. We have supported local people to deliver a wide range of activities in the park including a café, nursery, football club, weekly market, gardening club and food bank. Our park is at the heart of a richly diverse community where 60% of the population is non-white. MFPP is committed to being a diverse, inclusive, respectful, anti-racist organisation, where all persons are treated fairly and with respect. The post holder agrees to promote and uphold these principles.
