Make a difference. Give your time. 

Whether you're looking to give something back, learn a new skill, make new friends or simply have some free time that you'd like to spend on something important. There are many groups and organisations in the National Forest that support our work and are looking for volunteers like you to join them.

By joining one of the many conservation volunteer groups in the National Forest, you’ll be contributing to making a sustainable forest for everyone to enjoy.

We aim to provide our groups with all the skills they need to maintain and care for their part of the Forest, offering training, resources and advice when needed.

You’ll be joining a team of like-minded people and there are many ways to reap the rewards. From learning new skills and making new friends to finding out more about the wildlife that lives in our Forest, spending time in the woods is the perfect pastime.
