Volunteer with us

Who can volunteer?

Whether you are an individual, community group or business, we will work to tailor the right volunteering opportunity for you. 

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us on the link below and we will discuss the best volunteering activity for you. 

Our volunteers help to improve community health and well-being and tackle the climate and ecological crisis.




We run weekly practical volunteer work parties and you are likely to experience a variety of tasks, meet with other people and go away with a real sense of achievement.

You will also be helping to create and maintain a network of natural green spaces and access routes along our wildlife-rich river valleys. A network which will form part of the 3 Valleys Nature Park – our vision for the future. View 3 Valleys Nature Park brochure here.

Ways to get involved


Volunteering opportunities

We will provide tools and equipment – all you need to bring are old clothes and stout footwear. Further information here.
