What's involved?

Would you like to join our skilled team of operatives for a day out and experience what it's like working with the Trust?

You can join our team and see first hand just what goes into looking after the network in your area.

From lock maintenance to boundary repairs there is a whole host of things that you will be able to come and have a go at with one of our expert operatives on site to help you.

Take this opportunity to see the network as you have never before, learn more about what we at the Trust do and get messy while you're doing it!

Places are limited on each day so please apply soon and you will be provided with information on when and where you will need to be and what you will be doing.

We are currently looking for support for both weekdays and weekends.

What skills are we looking for?

What will I need to do?
Apply on the site here and then you will be contacted to make local arrangements and discuss your availability.

Please bring suitable footwear i.e. sturdy shoes or boots. Any open toe footwear and/or trainers will not be acceptable and you will not be able to participate in the day.
We ask also that you bring clothing you do not mind getting messy, you will likely be working with paint, grease, and other similar materials so please dress appropriately.

What will you get from us?

A chance to get out with a fantastic team of experts and volunteers tackling some of the most exciting and interest work our network has to offer.

This is a brilliant opportunity to work outside and have fun while you're doing it.

This is also a chance to find out about more of our volunteering opportunities all across the network.
