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.

Volunteer enquiry form

After registering your interest you'll be invited to a new volunteer session where you can find out more about the Trust and the current roles we have (dates will be emailed to you after we receive your enquiry form). We'll also give you the opportunity to have a go at a trial activity to see if you like it.

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