Volunteering – How You Can Help

Volunteers are important to help us deliver projects that conserve our mountains and provide access for outdoors enthusiasts. Our volunteering opportunities give people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds the chance to get involved and play their part.

Conservation days can include upland path maintenance and erosion control, and other practical conservation work.

Our volunteering opportunities give people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds the chance to get involved and play their part.

Whatever type of volunteering you take part in you will work alongside experienced people, learning techniques that enhance your practical conservation skills, and increase your knowledge of the natural and cultural heritage of our mountains. You’ll also make new friends.

There is a range of ways volunteers can get involved with us:

Conservation Volunteering Days

We want people to join in Conservation Volunteering Days to help protect and enhance upland habitats. On such days you will get out in the mountains, discover new places, take on challenges, meet people, learn new skills and improve your health and wellbeing through outdoor activity.

Spaces are usually limited and volunteers must book their places in advance. All of our activities are shown in our events calendar.

Adopt A Path

Developed by OATS, the Adopt A Path scheme lets you become a custodian of one of the paths we have worked on.  Adopt a Path volunteers report on damage or other path issues, allowing maintenance to be targeted to best effect. Volunteers get training and support to carry out path surveys safely and effectively, in order to supply us with the essential information we need. Find out more here.

Corporate Volunteering

Whether you are a couple of colleagues or a group of 50, corporate volunteering can be a great way to give something back, enjoy new experiences, break down barriers between teams or just have fun.  Get in touch to find out more about the benefits of volunteering through work and what opportunities we have available.

If you are part of a group, a club, a school, a business or an organisation we can help you get involved by tailoring activities to suit your needs.
