Volunteering

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.

The boxes below highlight some of our roles - click on each one to find out more. Our Volunteer Roles page holds information about all our opportunities.

Currently Recruiting:

We have paused our recruitment for the time being. Please check back later in the year for available opportunities.

We hope to welcome you to our team of over 500 volunteers; all of whom share a love of the Lake District.
