Welcome Volunteers, Castleton Visitor Centre
We are looking for friendly people to meet and greet visitors to our Castleton visitor centre with a smile. You will have an enthusiasm for national parks and the confidence to engage with visitors of all ages and abilities to help them enjoy, explore & understand the special qualities of the Peak District National Park. You will seek opportunities to support our drive to support our visitors and will fulfil volunteer responsibilities to maintain general operations and safety and security procedures as part of this role. The role provides the opportunity for you to be a great ambassador for the Peak District National Park whilst ensuring a positive experience so that visitors feel inspired to make a contribution to this beautiful place. In return, we will make sure you have the opportunity to meet new people, staff & fellow volunteers, take part in visitor experience volunteer training and induction and gain a valuable insight into the PDNPA’s work.
There will be morning or afternoon volunteering slots available and there will times you will be required to volunteer outside the building offering help and advice to our visitors.
For more information on either role, please contact Rachel Mora-Bannon (Volunteer Coordinator).
Peak Park Conservation Volunteers
PPCV provides a unique opportunity for individuals to join in and help protect the environment through practical conservation projects. Anyone can join the PPCV Individual programme (although we do ask if you’re under 18 that a parent or guardian accompanies you). We run projects throughout the year. There is no minimum volunteer commitment: if you’re busy, it’s too far away, or you just don’t fancy the project that month then don’t worry, there is always next month.
It’s easy and free to get involved.
