Volunteer - The Heart of England Forest



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

Our gradual reintroduction of volunteering in the Forest continues with small group sessions now being run. Volunteers are invited to visit in groups of five, with the days broken down into morning and afternoon sessions to enable as many volunteers as possible to take part.

If you are interested in finding out more, please email volunteer@hoef.co.uk

Microvolunteering options

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 volunteer@hoef.co.uk for more information.
