Get involved!

Brockholes volunteers and staff by Ellen Sherlock

Becoming a volunteer is a rewarding experience both physically and mentally.

It is a chance to meet new people, improve your wellbeing and make a positive difference to the wildlife on your doorstep. We value our volunteers and without them we simply couldn't deliver the valuable work we do.

We want to make sure we use your skills in the right way, and that you get the most out of your volunteering experience with us. Whatever your motivations - to meet new people, share your expertise or to help protect the future of wildlife - we will work with you to find the right volunteer opportunities for you.

My motivation

Connecting with nature through volunteering has given me the chance to reassess my life and focus on positive ways to stimulate my mind. I have met so many interesting people from a diverse range of backgrounds and have learnt from everyone I’ve met, I have gained a great sense of fulfilment and personal achievement through my work as a volunteer.
