At Wildside we rely on volunteers. 
We have 3 main ways for volunteers to get involved with helping the Centre deliver on its aims of giving as many people as possible the opportunity to experience nature.

Conservation Volunteers
Wildside has a regular group that meet twice per week to work on conservation tasks.
Corporate Volunteers
Companies can send volunteers to work with Wildside on a range of projects.
Perfect for team building, or giving a little back to the community.
Other Volunteers
Wildside has other volunteers that work around the site or at home, on jobs such as crewing the boat, administration or fundraising.

As a volunteer you are always assured of a warm welcome and friendly atmosphere at Wildside


Before I started volunteering, I was very withdrawn and depressed. When my job coach offered me the place at Wildside I embraced it. Sometimes you can be alone but not by yourself. While I’ve been here, I’ve been able to be myself and it’s so nice to work with others. I like myself now and it’s given me faith in people. I couldn’t have gone for my job interview before I came to Wildside, I wouldn’t have been able to stay in the room.


Crewing the boat has given me a chance to meet a wide range of interesting people I’d probably never have met. I feel my volunteering is making a difference.
