Find a volunteer project

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, some of our volunteering programs are currently operating on a limited basis, in line with social distancing and restrictions on travel. We encourage you to check with the local contact listed for each volunteering program to find out if they are currently operating.

Whatever your interest or experience there’s a volunteer project waiting for you.

You’ll usually be outdoors, so bring drinking water and wear sturdy closed-in shoes, a sun hat and sunscreen. Always talk to the project co-ordinator about what you should bring and chose a project matching your fitness level so that you can enjoy your time as a volunteer.
