Public notice: The Royal Parks has decided to suspend all volunteering, in light of the Prime Minister's advice to avoid all "non-essential contact". We understand that this is very disappointing, but believe it is best for health and safety. We will continue to review new information and guidance throughout the coming weeks and will resume the programme as soon as we are able. Please contact the Volunteer Team if you'd like any more information.

Our volunteers come from different places and with different motivations, but all are united in their passion for making a difference in our parks. The important work they do has a direct effect on the lives of millions of park users every year.

Meet some of the amazing people that help care for our parks, find out what they've been doing and what they've learnt during their time volunteering with us.
