Volunteers with Countryside Management Partnerships

Countryside Management Partnerships help manage habitat and landscapes and link communities to those areas.

They provide a safe working environment, friendly faces, the opportunity to undertake training and, of course, plenty of tea and coffee.

Opportunities include

  • planting trees
  • putting up fences
  • keeping footpaths clear
  • habitat management
  • wardens for wildlife reserves
  • looking after animals that are used in managing green spaces
  • biological recording such as pond surveys or looking for reptiles.

Volunteer officers

If you can commit more time you could become a volunteer officer. Responsibilities could include:

  • becoming an assistant to a member of staff and helping them in all aspects of their work
  • helping with administrative work
  • fundraising
  • managing a specific project
  • tools and maintenance (odd jobs and keeping tools in good condition).
