We’re looking for volunteers over the age of 18 who are passionate about the environment, recycling and climate change to help raise awareness of waste and sustainability issues.
The role of an Environment Action Volunteer is a diverse yet rewarding one, that will give you the opportunity to encourage positive behavioural change by offering practical support to community projects as well as providing advice to friends, family, neighbours and the wider public in order to motivate them to take action to reduce their environmental impact.

We’re looking for independent visitors who can spare a few hours a month to make a big difference to a young person in care.
An independent visitor is someone a young person can establish a relationship with outside of their foster or residential home, who can be a consistent figure in their lives.
You may go bowling, to the cinema or somewhere completely different, but the benefit to the young person is having an adult who is there for them, to listen, support and encourage them during their time in care and often beyond this time.
For some children in care, all the adults around them are professionals such as social workers and foster carers.
As an independent visitor, you cannot be:
an elected member or partner / spouse of the local authority (or any committees or sub-committees) responsible for the child in care
employed by, or a spouse of, someone employed by Childrens Social Care
an employee, patron or trustee of an associated organisation (such as an independent fostering agency)
You would be a volunteer but agreed expenses are paid.
