Volunteering

Volunteering is right at the heart of everything we do, in fact most of our activities are run and facilitated by volunteers and we hope that everyone will find a way to get involved. Some teams require a certain level of skill or experience whilst others no previous experience is necessary. Either way, the various teams will help you connect and find ways of getting stuck in.
