"I wanted to thank you for the effort you have put into the volunteer projects over the last few months, the feedback has been incredible and they've been the talk of the office. Almost every volunteer comments on how welcoming the team is and how well organised the events are"

"It was an absolute privilege yesterday, we really enjoyed the morning and it’s something I am really keen to do again!"

Our Park Days give your employees the opportunity to get out in the parks, learn practical skills that involve lots of hands-on activities and work together in the great outdoors! We promise they will have a fantastic day, building relationships, morale and leaving a positive footprint.

Businesses like yours help keep the Royal Parks beautiful and bursting with life every day. Last year 330 amazing corporate volunteers from 6 companies spent 20 days helping out in the parks.  They managed meadows in Kensington Gardens, planted bulbs in Hyde Park and repaired benches in Greenwich Park – to name a few!

Why we need your help

It costs £36m a year to run the eight Royal Parks, so that they can remain open for our 77 million visits each year. With limited funds we rely on the valuable time and energy devoted by teams of volunteers to make improvements to the parks possible that otherwise could not happen!

What are the opportunities in the Royal Parks?

We can provide your company with the unique opportunity to offer year-round support of your own Conservation Zone through a series of Park Days and sponsorship. Each Zone requires specific habitat management and is made up of a number of Park Days to encourage your team to get out of the office, into the fresh air and achieve practical outdoor activities to help sensitively manage these historic parklands.

Through volunteering in your own zone over a year, your team will feel an extra sense of pride and commitment for the work they undertake and its positive impact now and in the future. We have zones of all sizes, in the majority of the Royal Parks, so please get in touch to find out more.

If your organisation is unable to commit to a year’s support there are a few one-off volunteering opportunities to try out. Get in touch with the team to find out more.
