Volunteering

Why volunteer?

Volunteering lets you gain experience, it is good for your wellbeing and mental health, it helps your local community and is a great way to meet new people.

We are always looking for volunteers to support different areas of activity in our parks and green spaces.

Do you have an interest in conservation? Projects for conservation volunteers happen regularly. To add your name to our growing list of volunteers, contact the healthy spaces team for more information about what is happening locally. Please contact us for more details.
