Volunteer for NWT
Volunteers play a very important part in the success of Norfolk Wildlife Trust and we really value their support and commitment. As well as helping us to protect Norfolk's wildlife for the future, our volunteers learn new skills, meet new people and enjoy looking after some of Norfolk's most valuable natural areas. Volunteering can also provide valuable work experience which can enhance your CV.
We involve volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, completing a range of tasks and activities at locations all over Norfolk, including our head office in Norwich. Volunteering can be for as little as a couple of hours a week, and for many roles no particular skills or experience are required, as full training will be given.

Some of the ways you can get involved:
Habitat management such as coppicing, fencing, brushcutting, or checking grazing animals, participating in bird counts and species monitoring
Welcoming visitors, sharing wildlife information, promoting the work of the Trust, dealing with sales transactions. A very varied role and an essential part of what we do.
Outdoor Learning / Environmental Education
Helping to plan, assist and or/lead educational events, and work with school groups. (In order to work with children it is necessary to have an Independent Safeguarding Agency/CRB Certificate, together with two character references.)
Surveys and Wildlife Monitoring
Identifying field signs and species which help our conservation staff to build up a picture of the county's biodiversity
Join your local members’ group and get involved in wildlife issues and conservation in your local community. Groups meet informally throughout the year for talks, walks and social occasions.
