Volunteering Update

COVID-19 update as of 21.07.20

With further easing of the lockdown restrictions and staff returning from furlough, we are ready to gradually restart some of our volunteering activities.

This process will be done over the course of the next few months, with some roles being able to return quicker than others. With over 500 volunteers, ensuring the implementation of and adherence to new Covid-19 health and safety procedures, and ensuring volunteers have the necessary hygiene resources and support in place, this may take a while to complete.

A gradual approach will enable us to carefully monitor the process as we increase our activity and will ensure that we are keeping all of our valuable volunteers safe and, of course, that we are able to adapt as the guidance changes. Our volunteer-led local reserves groups will be some of the first to return, once the new and necessary measures have been put into place. These will be followed by Nature Force, Tame Force and some of the other project volunteer groups later in the summer. Our Office, Visitor Centre and Education volunteers will return once all required measures have been put into place to accommodate them safely back into our Brandon Marsh and Parkridge premises later in the year. Please bear with us and we will be in touch with leaders and groups about your important role with us, as staff return from furlough over the coming weeks.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of our valued volunteers for their time, support and patience as we work through this process. Things will most definitely be different when our volunteering activities restart but we are very much looking forward to seeing you all again as soon as we can and we thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding, as we all take on board and incorporate the new health and safety measures.

In the meantime, please continue to use the reserves and green spaces on your doorsteps and keep in contact with us via our social media pages and newsletter, which you can sign up to here on our homepage.

Volunteer with us - we need your help! You don’t have to be an expert or have experience, you just need lots of enthusiasm.

With over 500 active volunteers, volunteering is a key part of everything we do here at Warwickshire Wildlife Trust. Each role contributes to protecting and enhancing wildlife, natural habitats and geology throughout Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull. Volunteers work in many different roles, helping us to deliver a wide range of environmental services. We’re looking for volunteers to support a number of our projects, so if you’ve got some time to give we’d love to hear from you!

Unfortunately most of our nature reserves and offices are not on public transport routes which means most volunteers do need their own transport. 

Keen to volunteer with us? Fill in this short form as your first step!

Or for an informal chat about any of our volunteering role you may be interested in contact us on volunteer@wkwt.org.uk / 024 7630 2912.

How volunteering changed my life... I was made to feel welcome from the beginning, the others volunteers were friendly and talkative. I remember that day that the thing which surprised me the most was the fact that only five minutes walk from the busy city centre was a haven for wildlife.
