Janet Ullman

Janet has worked in the field of Landscape Conservation, Management and Environmental Education for over twenty years. She began her career as a Countryside Ranger and then worked for the Civil Service, and then as a Local Nature Reserve and Nature Centre Manager and then as a consultant for Local Authorities dealing with fund raising and Social Regeneration Funds from European Funding, which then lead to being a Grants Adviser and Grant mentor for HLF and RSWT. In Scotland she has specialised in outreach projects as an Environmental Education Contractor, one of which was the Highland Seashore Project which ran from 2013 to 2016. Since then she has worked more locally with local community groups, identifying the real power to get anything done is through local action, which is always passionate and committed.
