 Dan Meakin 

Head of Marketing

Dan has been in digital marketing for ten years now and has helped many charities do more of what they do best. After the team helped remove some trees from his garden he was struck by their business and personal ethics and wanted to get stuck in. When he's not behind a laptop he's cycling or on the beach.




Linda worked as a Legal Executive for 42 years prior to retiring. She loves swimming, travel, her garden and Watford FC. She wants to see workplace opportunities and training being offered to everyone.

Jenny has been with us since our founding, she helps train our garden maintenance staff and is skilled in everything gardening related. Jenny has a kind and caring heart and deeply cares about giving equal employment opportunities for the neurodivergent community, so much so she has chosen to be unpaid for her time.

The old English meaning of Blissett is Blessed, James has certainly felt very blessed his whole life with many amazing opportunities.

James is passionate about equal employment opportunities for all.
