Take action for wildlife

Donate to Northumberland Wildlife Trust

Help wildlife and protect our special landscapes

Anyone can volunteer with Northumberland Wildlife Trust. With 60 nature reserves, two amazing visitor centres, offices and information programmes to run, there’s a wide range of things to do. And we can’t do it without you!

Volunteers are a vital part of NWT and we hope to give everyone a fun and rewarding experience. We have an action force of about 350 dedicated volunteers who contribute the equivalent of 22 full time employees each year.

How can you get involved?

Search through our volunteer opportunities to get an idea of the roles available and decide what might suit you. Please note you must be at least 16 years old to volunteer with us.

What next?

If you have spotted something that interests you (or even a few things) then just click the link below, create an account and sign up to the next new volunteer session. The sessions offer you the chance to find out more about the Trust and the current roles, and we can then set you up with a trial go to see if you like it.

I'd like to volunteer

You get a real sense of doing something worthwhile and you’re always valued and thanked for your efforts.
