Volunteers already play a vital role in many aspects of our community. One thing we can learn from the covid pandemic is that, although our local public services generally do a great job, they need major inputs from volunteers working alongside them to help us all through major challenges. Although we can’t predict exactly when and how the climate crisis will have major impacts locally, we need to prepare for this within the next few years, and volunteers will play a crucial role in helping us to do so.

Many of the organisations in all sections of this directory need volunteers. You can find current opportunities via:
