We welcome people from all backgrounds and can provide an enjoyable, supportive environment where you can feel part of the team and do something worthwhile. Whether you are finding it difficult getting into paid employment and want to gain skills and experience, or you have some spare time because you are retired, we would love to hear from you. We provide basic training and induction, and of course other training about keeping safe and how to use the tools and equipment. Whilst much of the work can be physically demanding there are sometimes opportunities to do lighter work.

Types of volunteers that we have worked with:

  • Those trying to gain paid employment
  • Retired or semi-retired
  • Those on work placements
  • Those who like to work with wood and hate waste
