Meet the team
We work for Resource Futures, an independent environmental sustainability company, and accredited B-Corp, working to minimise the impact of consumption on the environment now and in the future.
The CAG Devon project is run by a small team of dedicated part-time staff, supported by a team of specialists from Resources Future’s head office.
Helen Vines – CAG Devon Project Manager

She has a BA in Geography, and Community and Youth Studies, and an Msc in Landscape Ecology, Design and Management. Her best summer ever was volunteering at Cape Cod National Seashore!
Helping organisations to measure the difference they make, aka their ‘social impact’, Helen worked in the UK and also with the British Council Social Enterprise team in Turkey, Malta, Greece and India. She is constantly inspired by the passion and values of the organisations she gets to work with, who seek to make the world a better place at a local or global level.
