Volunteering can be so much fun – you can meet new people, learn new skills and gain confidence, get fit and active, and make a real difference to your local community and environment. The Land of Iron offers lots of opportunities for volunteering, inside or outdoors, for as little or as much time as you have to spare. We also have work experience and study placements with our project team.

Current opportunities include - archaeology and excavations, lime mortar training, daffodil surveys, path repair, 3D computer modelling, habitat management, wildflower surveys, tree planting and riverbank stabilisation.

If you are keen to get involved or have an idea which volunteers could help with, please get in touch on or 01439 772700.
