Whether you want to volunteer as a towpath ranger, help wildlife, learn more about canal heritage or take one of the roles in our visitor centre, there’s bound to be one of our volunteer opportunities to suit you. 

Go to our volunteer pages to find out all you need to know about the ins and outs of volunteering and how you can get involved now. For instance, right now, here at Standedge Tunnel and Visitor Cente we’re on the lookout for:

Café and retail assistant:

As a volunteer retail and catering assistant you will be serving customers and handling their enquiries at this small but busy visitor attraction. The role includes manning the till, preparing and serving a range of food and drinks and ensuring the café, kitchen and shop area are kept well presented at all times.

Events volunteer:

If you like the waterways, love meeting new people and get excited about sticky backed plastic and glitter glue then why not join our team of events volunteers? As a friendly face and through fun activities you will help engage people with your local waterway.

Visitor Centre guide and story teller:

You will be the face of the visitor centre, playing a key role in the enjoyment of the visitor experience and making sure our visitors leave with a greater understanding and affinity to the waterways.
