TCV in the South West

Across the south west, we provide a mixture of practical projects and family-friendly events, both during the week and at the weekends. If you want to volunteer with us, either individually or with a small group of friends, family members or colleagues, then the easiest way is to join one of our existing projects.

Most of these opportunities are free and we run them in a professional but fun, friendly and positive way. New members are always very welcome and no experience is necessary.

Most people find becoming a conservation volunteer is worthwhile, great fun and helps them to feel both fitter and happier. For many it becomes an activity that stays with them all their lives. We look foward to meeting you!
