Local Group Volunteer Helper (Highland Local Group)

Opportunity image

Our groups are entirely volunteer run and led, and are at the front lines for key engagement with local people, with their extensive programme of walks, talks, day trips and indoor meetings that group members, and members of the public, can attend and enjoy. We want you to become a part of this strong community of nature champions. We're looking for people who are passionate about connecting people with nature, and helping in the smooth running of the group, with the option to help out in various ways!

Right now we are particularly keen on getting volunteers who are a part of the Highlands for our RSPB Highland Local Group.

With lockdown forcing people indoors and out of their normal daily routines, they became much more aware, and better understood the importance of the outdoors for their mental health, general well-being and more. Doubled with the on-going climate crisis, people are waking up to the fact that we need to indulge in and save nature more than ever before. The RSPB Highland Local Group want to inspire their local communities to reconnect with nature.

By becoming part of the group, you'll have the chance to be involved in so many of the groups aspects. From fundraising to events, maintenance to membership, you'll have the opportunity to use your existing skills (and learn new ones) to build the group and make it an ever more important aspect of local RSPB connections with people. Being a community group, you'll also have the opportunity to make new friends and relationships, have fun, and know you are enthusing people about the joys of nature. We have groups across the UK and further details can be found at www.rspb.org.uk/groups. Feel free to contact your local group direct or go along to an event or two to find out more. And if you can't find a group near you and would like to help set one up please click on "Ask a question".

All you need is a willingness and ability to help with one or more of the varied activities of our RSPB groups, and able to give a minimum of a few hours each month (or more!).
