The Big Family Day Out is all about getting out and volunteering with your family. Once a year, (in the May and October half-terms) employers who sign up to the Big Family Day Out, will give staff one day off to volunteer with their family at a Trust place.

The October half-term activities include clearing scrub, tree planting, harvesting vegetables and building paths. Dates and locations will be listed shortly.

What do I do?

  1. Choose your activity
  2. Find out if your company is involved, here's the complete list (pdf). (If your employer isn’t on the list don’t worry, just email us and we'll help you get them involved.
  3. Book with your company representative (they'll need names of each family member, ages of children and activity you are interested in). They will send your details to us and we'll contact you to confirm your place and provide further information (time to meet, directions, what to bring), a couple of weeks before the activity.
  4. Turn up for a day of worthwhile fun.
