Slowing the Flow Volunteer

In partnership with the Environment Agency and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, South West Peak Partnership Landscape will see our new Slowing the Flow Project where Cheshire, Derbyshire and Staffordshire meet. The project is working to implement a range of natural flood management techniques. Get involved in anything from creating leaky dams, to building temporary water storage areas, to planting woodlands. Help Ashley Deane, the project manager, out by registering to volunteer on the project.

Event Volunteer

We have an active event and training calendar, and we need some support in delivering this. From helping promote the events, to aiding us in the administrative side, to being there on the day to help us run the event. Whether you're good with people, enjoying marketing and promotion, or love getting analytical. If you think you could help let us know!

Gardening Volunteer

Do you fancy helping to create a thriving wildlife friendly garden at Bickley Hall Farm? Why not join our thursday garden club!

Working with Children and Young People

We run learning and environmental education sessions and need volunteers to help inspire and engage with this audience. If you think that is for you maybe you want to become a Forest School Assistant, People and Wildlife Volunteer or Watch Leader.

Office and Administration 

Come and join our team of reception and office volunteers at our headquarters near Malpas. These are vital roles to help the smooth running of the organisation. We need support with event administration and promotion, gerenal admin and even some support with the crafty creation of our educational materials.

Wildlife Surveys

The trust relies upon records and surveys so that we know how best to manage our sites. We currently survey across the county for species like birds, butterflies and dragonflies. We only have the capacity for experienced surveyors at the moment, but you can begin to learn by booking onto one of our training courses. You can then use your new skills to collect valuable data that can be submitted to rECOrd
