Becoming a Trustee / Volunteering

Find your trustee or volunteering role now

We couldn’t do what we do without the support of our amazing trustees and volunteers.  Our Trustees and volunteers have been instrumental to our success and with your support we can achieve even more.

Our trustees and volunteers support us in many ways including fundraising, providing specialist advice, governance, investigating proposed planning developments, managing our social media and website and much more! Every single person makes a difference to the countryside that we all feel so passionate about. We value their contribution enormously.

By becoming a trustee or volunteering with us you’ll be part of a friendly team of like-minded people. You’ll gain new skills and we’ll give you the training you may need for your volunteering role. You can join in with our social events, attend workshops and take part in our annual national conference.
