Volunteers Annual Report 15/16

More than 400 fantastic people from all walks of life volunteer regularly for the Lake District Volunteers Service. They give their time, skills and energy to help look after the landscape, enable visitors to enjoy its special qualities and support the wider work of the National Park Authority.

To volunteer with us you need to be aged 16 or over and there is no upper age limit. We also run a Young Ranger programme for young people aged 14 – 18 who are keen to get involved with very hands on practical volunteering.

Volunteers help us in lots of different roles. We recruit for some roles all year round, while others are seasonal.  Different roles have different time contributions - ranging from one day for one off activities such as marshalling events, to 20 days a year for more specialist roles like Lake Rangers.  

Volunteering vacancies can be found on the current opportunities page and everyone is welcome to find out more or apply for these roles.
