Whether you have an hour, a day or a week to give, there are plenty of opportunities open to you.

Volunteers are crucial to the work of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. Volunteers enable us to manage great swathes of Yorkshire's wild places, run projects that safeguard habitats and species for future generations and educate young and old about the wildlife around them.

However much time you have, or wherever your skills lie, there are many ways in which you can help.

Find out more about the current volunteer roles available by choosing your geographical area above. We also offer voluntary traineeships which range from 6-months to one year in length and are perfect for picking up skills for a future career in conservation.


Volunteer Open Day at the Living Seas Centre - Thursday 2nd February

We have some exciting new roles based at our Living Seas Centre in Flamborough and we’re holding an open day for you to come along and find out more about these great roles, as well as meet the team and have a look around. The LSC has gone from strength to strength in the last few years with visitor numbers soaring and we’re in need of talented people who can help at our events and education sessions and also natural leaders who would be willing to run sessions solo. To help keep things on track we need organisers and planners, people who like to do the behind the scenes stuff like rotas and bookings and help coordinate all the volunteers.

If you'd like to come along to the open day we're look forward to seeing you. For more details or to book a place on the day contact
