Coronavirus and volunteering
During lockdown all volunteering in the Forest was temporarily suspended. With the Government easing restrictions on outdoor activities, we are looking at ways to reintroduce practical volunteering in the Forest whilst ensuring that we take all steps necessary to keep our volunteers safe.
Practical volunteering in the Forest
The easing of restrictions means that we can begin the phased reintroduction of practical volunteering in the Forest.
We are not able to resume group volunteering work, but there are tasks that can be undertaken either individually or with someone from your household. The first phase will focus on looking after our public access routes, which enable visitors to benefit from spending time in the Forest. There will be one off tasks as well as weekly tasks, all of which can be accomplished in your own time.

Microvolunteering offers a menu of tasks that can be done at a time that is convenient to you. You don’t need to go through an application process and don’t need to commit to regular times, or for the long term.
Many of the tasks can be done at home and include writing an article on the Forest’s biodiversity, putting together a series of posts for our social media channels, or doing some internet research to support our outdoor learning programmes. We will now also be able to offer microvolunteering tasks that can be completed in the Forest.
If you are interested in microvolunteering, please email email@example.com for more information.
