COVID-19 Volunteering Policy

Last updated: 7th April 2021

We are committed to safe working practices and complying with government policy, while offering valuable outdoor volunteering activities. In order to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19, the following measures remain in place: 

Restricted group sizes for activities – when an email invitation is sent out to subscribed volunteers about an upcoming activity, they will be asked to let the organisers know if they want to attend. Those who are not subscribed to our emails will be able to RSVP via our website – please see our upcoming volunteering activities for full details. Group sizes are currently limited to 5 attendees and 1 team leader.  

Maintaining social distancing on sites for activities – keeping 2 metres apart. 

Volunteers bringing their own gloves and cups – volunteers will be asked to provide their own gloves for working in and to bring their own cups for refreshments. Hot water and beverages will be available at activities, but volunteers are always welcome to bring their own. 

Volunteers allocated a set of tools at the start of each work session – these tools will then be cleaned with anti bacterial sprays and wipes at the end of the session and before use on the next session. Volunteers can of course bring their own tools. 

Taking contact numbers of all volunteers attending – this is to ensure that we can contact attendees if anyone subsequently reports symptoms. 

Providing hand sanitisers, wipes and sprays at every work session. 

We value the health, safety and welfare of our volunteers and appreciate the hard work and contribution everyone makes to our projects. If you have any concerns or queries, please do contact us at
