Volunteer Zone

Welcome to the Volunteer Zone, a dedicated space for the volunteers who help support our work. Whether you lead walks, carry out campaigning work, maintain your local paths or help run a group, you'll find resources and information relevant to your role here.

If you're not currently a volunteer but are interested in getting involved, you can find out more about volunteering in our Support us section. You can also find out about our volunteer path teams in the what we do section.

Your Volunteer Zone

We want to make this section as easy to use and informative as possible for you so your feedback is really important to us. If you have any trouble finding your way around the Volunteer Zone user guide may help.

Volunteer toolkits

We’ve grouped volunteer support materials into a series of ‘toolkits’ based on both volunteering activities and roles - each toolkit is made up of downloadable resources and web pages. Some key toolkits are listed below but please click on the 'Volunteer toolkits' heading to see the full list.
