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. This Exploited 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 opportunities for work experience and study placements with our project team.
