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 listed below to get an idea of the roles available and decide what might suit you.

What next?

If you have spotted something that interests you (or even a few things) then just click the link below, complete the form and we'll get back to you soon to invite you to a 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 session 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.
