PM01 - Staffing and Associated Budgets

Project Aim: To provide the Staff Team required to deliver Ryevitalise to its full potential

Project Outcomes:

  • Support and   engagement in Ryevitalise Partnership Group and Forum
  • Engagement in   Thematic Working Groups
  • Stronger   relationships between partners, communities and land managers
  • Successful delivery of the LCAP

PM02 -  Training and Volunteering


Volunteers are central to the success of the Ryevitalise Scheme.  All of our 'on the ground' projects are aimed at engaging with the community and where possible incorporating teams of volunteers to help us meet the outputs set out for each project.  You can keep up to date on our latest vacancies on our 'Volunteering Opportunities' page.

If you are interested in helping us deliver projects to benefit the wildlife and habitats of the River Rye please get in touch.


Our project will support a comprehensive training programme, and appoint Apprentices to help us deliver on our key themes, helping to train young people to gain a broad appreciation of the rich diversity, influences and vulnerability of the Rye catchment.

Project Aim: This project includes two complementary elements –

  • Formal training through delivery of a Ryevitalise Apprenticeship Programme
  • A broader volunteer engagement programme to deliver Ryevitalise Landscape Partnership project elements, engaging and raising awareness and ownership by participants

Project Outcomes:

  • Training – Ryevitalise Apprenticeship Programme
  • Volunteering – Ryevitalise Volunteers
  • Health and Wellbeing benefits

PM03 Evaluation and Monitoring

As a condition of our funding, we need to carry out an end of scheme evaluation, and make sure we report back to the Heritage Lottery Fund on the key things we said that we would do for each project.

Some of this ongoing monitoring will be done by individual project partners, whilst the main scheme evaluation will be done by an external company.

We don't want the benefits of Ryevitalise to stop after the scheme has ended, and having an ongoing evaluation process helps all partners take stock of what has been achieved, identify any legacy aspects we can use after the scheme has finished, and maintain a focus on how activities can be carried forward into the future.

Project Aim: 

  • Measure and evidence the impact of the scheme, demonstrating and celebrating the positive impacts it has made
  • Highlight where impacts could be maximised and ensure a valuable and positive legacy
  • Highlight lessons and learning to improve impact

Ongoing evaluation will take place through individual feedback following events and volunteer activities. The external evaluation will offer a critical check at the mid-term with the necessary recommendations. The final report will reflect on the impact of the scheme’s delivery phase, including an assessment of the outputs and outcomes delivered.

Project Outcomes:

An evaluation of project delivery during the implementation phase of Ryevitalise to report on progress in line with the outputs and outcomes identified in the LCAP; that delivery is responsive to need, that key messages are understood and relayed, and that participants are confident their contribution is valued.
