VOLUNTEERING

OUTDOORS

Summer’s here and there’s no need to be stuck indoors!

  • If you like to get your hands dirty there are gardening roles and other outdoor roles available for people who care about wildlife and conservation.
  • You could help others get out and about too by volunteering as a community minibus or social car driver.
  • If your time is short consider one-off volunteering and offer your services at charity special event days throughout the year.

For your personalised volunteering list go to the Home Page, enter your postcode and choose your interests, such as:

  •  Environment
  • Fitness and Sport
  • Wildlife and Animals

Complete this with your chosen activity, e.g:

  • Gardening
  • General Helping
  • Local Events
  • One-off Events
  • Practical Skills 

If you can’t find a suitable role in the generated list please get in touch with your local Volunteer Centre where they’ll be more than happy to help.

Whether you are an indoor or an outdoor person there really is a volunteering role for everyone so why not give it a go!
