Volunteer path teams

Volunteers are right at the heart of making sure we can keep the places people love to walk open.  

We have volunteer path teams across the country that go out and cut back overgrowth, insert new waymarks and signposts, replace stiles with gates and even repair bridges. All to keep paths clear and easy for everyone to use. 

Rambler’s volunteer path teams make a huge contribution to their local community. When this is added together across Great Britain our volunteers contribute the equivalent of almost £1million through their time and effort in helping to improve the countryside.

Our work to keep the countryside open wouldn’t be possible without our volunteers and we’re always looking for extra hands. You don’t have to be a D.I.Y expert to get involved, just willing to get stuck in. Find out more about how you can join in.

We’re already working with over half of all local authorities including nearly all highway authorities in England and Wales. If you’re interested in working with our volunteers please contact: volunteersupport@ramblers.zendesk.com.
