Volunteer with us

Volunteering helps people connect with each other, with the wider community and perhaps most importantly the work of volunteers helps make our parks and open spaces even better.

Volunteers support our work in many ways, from managing habitats and surveying wildlife to recording heritage, leading walks  and inspiring school children.

As a volunteer you have the chance to get involved with your local community, meet new people, develop your skills and learn more about the eight amazing Royal Parks.

We value all our volunteers and have recently developed a new Volunteering Strategy (2018-21) which outlines our commitment. This is an exciting time to be part of The Royal Parks and in return for your time we will offer a high quality, impactful and memorable volunteering experience!

Get involved

We would love to welcome you to volunteer with us. You can see the range of roles we offer below and then take a look at our current opportunites to see which ones have vacancies.

Learning and Engagement

Our learning and engagement volunteers inspire thousands of visitors to our parks every year. They support school groups and help to lead walks, talks and other engagement activities.

Horticulture

We are always looking for an extra pair of hands to help us care for our gardens and allotments. Tasks are varied but may include planting, weeding, watering and generally keeping the site in tip top condition!

Wildlife and Conservation

Volunteers are vital in surveying the wide range of wildlife that call The Royal Parks home. We also rely on the support of volunteers to help manage habitats for conservation, such as maintaining woodland and planting wildflower meadows.

Heritage

With a history spanning over 500 years the parks, and the monuments within them, are an important part of London’s heritage. Volunteering opportunities may include research projects or leading walks and talks.
