Volunteers are vital for parks to flourish and develop. By giving your time you will not only be making a difference to your park but you will also become part of the parks community where you will learn new skills and gain a real sense of achievement.
Friends of Parks groups rely on volunteers so if you are interested check out the Park page for the park you are interested in and find out whether there is a Friends group. If there isn’t and you are interested in setting one up, you can find information on the Friends of Park page with links to some really helpful resources.
There are lots of great resources for people interested in volunteering; you can search for vacancies on the Volunteer Scotland website. You can also register for a My Volunteer Account to find opportunities that fit with your interests. Other resources where you can search for volunteering opportunities include Volunteer Centre Edinburgh and Volunteer Glasgow.
If you are a Friends of Park Group looking for volunteers visit the Recruiting Volunteers section on the Volunteering Scotland website.
