Everything we do is thanks to our dedicated volunteers to help bring the trusts values to life.  We welcome everything from a one-off ad-hoc volunteering to long-term volunteering in a number of different role where you will be supported and developed in your.  We also welcome those who would like to volunteer with us who already have expertise in a particular field and happy to help support others volunteers to develop. Below are specific projects and groups that are actively seeking volunteers.  If there is nothing here that takes your fancy, contact us anyway, if you have a particular drive to start a project or group on behalf of the trust and it fits within our charitable aims we can support you in getting your group or project going.

We never want to turn away anyone who is willing to help us with our mission, however depending on what you are interested in additional orientation or induction may be required which has led to the two main categories of general volunteering. 

Open Groups and Projects - These are open to anyone, you do not need to be members to take part. The nominated lead volunteer(s) for the group or project will have had the relevant training and will support you during your volunteering.  Each project and group has there own mini-site where you can found out more.
