CPRE has existed for almost a century, and volunteers have been at the heart of our successes. Every volunteer makes a difference to the countryside that we’re so passionate about, and we value their contribution enormously. With your support, we can achieve even more.

Why volunteer with us?

By volunteering with a local CPRE, you’ll be helping enhance the countryside where you live and meeting people with similar interests. You’ll gain new skills and get all the training you need in your volunteering role. You’ll be part of a friendly and supportive team and can join in with social events, workshops and our annual conference.

Our volunteers support us in many different ways including the leadership of local CPRE groups, fundraising, providing specialist advice, managing social media channels, maintaining websites, picking litter and much more!

We want you to have an excellent volunteering experience with us, and so we’ve made commitments to our volunteers.

Meet our volunteers

To celebrate Volunteers' Week we asked people why they enjoyed volunteering with CPRE. Some loved the experience and working with new people, some wanted make sure the countryside was there for future generations. We're very grateful to them for sharing their many reasons for working with us.

Our volunteer hub

We have a dedicated hub of information for our volunteers. This is your one-stop-shop for everything you need to know about volunteering with us, from finding opportunities to guidance and support.

Ready to explore? Get stuck in by diving in to see what opportunities we have on offer.

Can’t see a role near to you? Some of our local groups aren’t advertising their opportunities here yet, so it’s always worth checking the website of your nearest CPRE directly. You can find your local group and their contact details here.

And if you already volunteer with us or have started an application already, you can go one step further and log straight in.
