Conservation volunteers

Volunteering with us

There's a wide variety of volunteer roles at Hadrian’s Wall Country Group and ways to be involved, such as archaeology, wildlife, practical conservation, welcoming visitors, walking, retail, events and much more.

If you would like to join our team of volunteers please get in touch by phone on 01434 321888 or e-mail.
 

How much time?

Our volunteers are a diverse group of different ages and situations. Some give time regularly, others are involved on and off, some for work experience. The frequency with which you volunteer is entirely up to you.

Social events

We organise meetings and social events for volunteers three or four times a year to allow our volunteers to get to know each other better, for giving training, for listening to a guest speaker or just to say thank you.

Training

We support volunteers who may be looking to develop experience in a certain field and can often help when training opportunities within the Trust become available, we give training for essential volunteer tasks.

'Take trees, rivers, hills, wildlife, monuments and add people. What do you get? A volunteer. What makes the role of a volunteer so rewarding is the opportunity to not just enjoy and work on England's finest properties and countryside but also the wonderful friendships that develop - brilliant.'

'I carry out grey squirrel surveys along Allen Banks. The great thing about the Trust is their flexibility, even if you can only volunteer for one day a month it will be much appreciated. The experiences gained through volunteering led to my appointment as Engaging Communities Officer with Red Squirrels Northern England. I've met some great people, had a lot of fun and found a job that I love.'
