Public notice: The Royal Parks is carefully reintroducing some volunteering in the coming weeks. This will be a phased reintroduction and will start with existing roles, we are also slowly opening up new opportunities again and will be taking on new volunteers where opportunities have space to do so.

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! You can also read our current Volunteer Policy for more detailed information about volunteering.

Get involved

We are slowly opening up our opportunities again and will be taking on new volunteers where opportunities have space to do so. Please keep an eye on the 'The Royal Parks' Volunteering opportunities page for open opportunities. If there are no opportunities open that suit you at the moment, please do keep checking as we will continue to add new ones.
