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 which means we have decided to take a pause on recruiting new volunteers, and putting out new volunteering opportunities. We understand that this is very disappointing, we will continue to review new information and guidance throughout the coming weeks and when we're ready to involve new volunteers, we will show the volunteering opportunities here on our website.

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.
