Volunteer on a working weekend in The National Forest

Leicester, Leicestershire

New experiences, new skills, new friends, and a break from everyday living all come free to National Forest Conservation volunteers.

Developing a National Forest was – and still is – a big and visionary plan to support England’s future well-being. For those who live here, and those who visit.

Contributing positively to that, even in a small way, is doubly rewarding: personal achievement, and turning the dream into reality. Volunteering for the greater good.  So; try your hand at some hedge-laying; help to build a dry stone wall; join in with a woodland management team. Outdoors, away from it all. Enjoying the countryside.  Rewarding recreational time isn’t always what you spend on it – but how you spend it.

The offices for The Conservation Volunteers in the National Forest are based in Leicester, with further East Midlands TCV offices in Derby, Northampton, Nottingham and Gainsborough.
