Volunteering

Do you want to meet new people, learn new skills or simply spend more time in beautiful Sherwood?

Are you looking for something to do with your spare time, or to use your spare time to build skills for a career? Whatever your reason, we have a volunteering opportunity for you.

The RSPB runs on volunteers, and Sherwood is no different – we are committed to giving you the best possible experience, helping you to help us. Whether you have lots of time to give, or just a couple of days a year, our flexible approach and mix of roles will mean your time won’t go to waste. Read about our current opportunities below.

Volunteer Roles at Sherwood Forest

We’re sorry to say that we’re currently pausing our volunteering programme at Sherwood due to Covid-19. We are now getting this back up and running at the Visitor Centre, but do not have capacity to take on new volunteers at this time. This is under regular review, so keep an eye on this page, and we will add new roles as they become available.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the RSPB at Sherwood Forest.’
