Volunteers are an integral and essential part of our community; without whose time and dedication many of our services would not be able to operate.
We currently have 15 regular volunteers providing approximately 50 hours or service; supporting the activities and the administration of the centres. Others help out as and when they are needed, especially during fundraising events.
New Volunteer Project
Mathew Sowerby joined the team as our Volunteer Coordinator in September 2015. Matt will be setting up a new volunteering project funded by the WCVA (the Welsh Council for Voluntary Action), to find volunteering opportunities for people outdoors, mainly in the National Parks, but also in the general locality.
Eco Volunteering Project
A new project was established, with funding from the WCVA’s ‘Volunteering in Wales’ fund, to recruit and mentor volunteers to work within the Beacons National Park and with other agencies including Brecknock Wildlife Trust, to undertake conservation work to improve the local environment. The project has allowed us to build a strong partnership with the National Parks who have now given us responsibility for managing and maintaining the wildlife garden at the Visitor Centre in Libanus. Work includes undertaking a wildlife survey and site mapping exercise, building new garden furniture, building pathways, drainage and discovering a rare and protected species of newt! Volunteers have also been trained in undertaking wildlife surveys and undertaken an accredited tree identification course
We are always looking for volunteers to join the organisation. If you are interested in giving a few hours of your time each week, please either contact the office on 01874 611529 or you can download the Volunteer Application Form.
