From youth work and education, to sport and conservation, there's a huge variety in the kind of volunteering opportunities available.

So how do you decide which kind of volunteering you would like to do?

Each month during the Year of the Volunteer a different volunteering theme will be highlighted to provide all the information you could need to decide if you're interested in volunteering in that area. May is Environment Month.

May is Environment Month

May is the month to get out and about volunteering in the fresh air, countryside and green spaces in your communities.

Get involved in May’s events and be inspired to improve the environment on your doorstep. This could be in your local park, in a nature reserve or local woods, but whatever you do you’ll be making a real impact in helping conserve the environment.
