Current guidance on volunteering - Covid 19
In line with the government road map out of lockdown, we have created our own road map to help us bring volunteering back to Cheshire Wildlife Trust safely.
From the 12th of April we will be restarting our outdoor volunteering activities. There are no restrictions on volunteers travelling to take part in an activity. Places will need to be booked in advance and for group activities, numbers will still be restricted. Tool sharing will not be allowed and social distancing measures will still be in place. It is likely that not all opportunities will begin immediately, volunteer leaders will contact their mailing lists as they plan for the coming weeks.
From the 17th of May we will be able to offer volunteering opportunities that take place indoors. As our events also restart, volunteers will once again be able to give talks on our behalf and support at events and open days.
All our volunteers will be asked to complete a Covid form and will still be issued with a protocol giving clear instructions on what to do if they feel unwell during an activity or within seven days of being with us
Things have changed over the last year and our volunteering opportunities may now also be different to those before Covid. All our volunteer opportunities will be listed on these pages, if you can’t find something you want to take part in, please keep checking back for updates. There is also lots you can do from home to help bring wildlife back. Have a look at our Actions page for some ideas.
As a volunteer at Cheshire Wildlife Trust you’ll be joining a network of over 350 like-minded people, who give anything from a few hours to a few days each year to support our work across Cheshire.
We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities to get involved with. Everything from getting your hands dirty on a nature reserve, to supporting at events and open days or helping with office admin.
Very simply, we couldn’t do what we do without volunteers. You don’t always need to be an expert to get involved, full training and support is given for all our activities. You’ll have the chance to meet new people, learn new skills and share your experience with others. Being a volunteer with us is a rewarding experience, that's why our volunteers keep coming back.
Please note, unless it is specified on the volunteer opportunity we are unable to accept volunteers under the age of 18.
