We couldn’t carry out the work we do without our volunteers. Whether it’s practical
conservation tasks on local nature sites, environmental education sessions with local
schools or community events, becoming a volunteer with us is a great way to get involved
with fantastic environmental projects.
In return for your time, we provide training and supervision in a range of countryside
skills and environmental conservation projects. We endeavour to provide opportunities
to work towards practical qualifications required in the environmental industry.
Volunteers have gained certificates in using power tools such as chainsaws, brushcutters
& strimmers; tree surgery; and First Aid at Work, whilst volunteering with us.
So whether you’re looking to become part of the next generation of countryside professionals,
would like to contribute something positive to your local environment or are looking
for a friendly and sociable atmosphere in which to volunteer, SVP can provide you
with a great opportunity.
