Lake District National Park Authority volunteers support our work in so many ways - from maintaining paths on the fells to welcoming first-time visitors in popular villages. Our volunteers come from all over Cumbria and neighbouring counties, and we have roles to suit a range of interests. Many of our opportunities don't require previous experience, and all our roles are open to everyone aged 16 or over.
By joining our volunteer programme you'll be helping ensure that visitors enjoy the National Park in a sustainable and responsible way; by helping keep car parks and roads clear, by advising about keeping the landscape pristine, and by sharing new areas and ways to explore the Lake District. The roles will also be supporting the National Park Authority, local communities and businesses to recover from the economic problems created by coronavirus.
The boxes below highlight roles that are currently recruiting volunteers - click on each one to find out more and apply if it sounds right for you. Our Volunteer Roles page holds information about all our opportunities. If the role you're interested in isn't currently recruiting then please join our mailing list and be first to know when opportunities open.
We hope to welcome you to our team of over 550 volunteers; all of whom share a love of the Lake District.
