Peak Park Conservation Volunteers (PPCV) run one volunteer residential centre, Brunt's Barn, where groups of volunteers can stay over and undertake their conservation volunteer project. The centre is an ideal location for groups to spend a weekend or overnight stay midweek in the Peak District National Park, and gives groups staying at the centre time in the evenings to experience more of the Peak District National Park’s unique qualities. In the past we have welcomed a wide selection of groups, from Scouts and Guides and other youth and education groups, to walking and rambling groups, as well as a wide variety of community organisations.
The centre is set up like bunk house and is self-catering, but has all the facilities you would expect (toilets, showers and a fully equipped kitchen with pots, pans, cutlery, microwave, cooker and fridge). Volunteers only need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, tea towel, suitable clothing and personal equipment.
The PPCV team will be on hand to take you out in our minibus to the conservation project and guide you through the day:
- PPCV will provide all the necessary tools and PPE, with a quick and clear explanation on how to use all the tools.
- We will explain about the particular site you’re working on and why your project is important to it.
- The PPCV team are first aid trained and equipped with first aid kits.
