We are always in need of help in our small hospital room. If you have the time, interest and commitment, we could do with your help. With no paid staff, we are entirely reliant on our volunteer team to keep the charity going.
Volunteering with us is probably one of the most rewarding things you can do with your spare time. The work is hard and mucky and you need to possess the skills to cope with difficult and upsetting situations as and when they arise but the feeling of helping an animal return to the wild is incredible and many of our volunteers have gone on to have successful careers in the animal care sector.
In order to volunteer with us, we have to insure you and cover the cost of this so you MUST be able to commit to one day per week, every week and you must be reliable for that day. These animals really do need our help so , if you do not feel that you will be able to attend every week, please don’t apply.
You must also be over 18 and be prepared to work outside in all weathers!
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US – Tea and Coffee plus a feeling of complete satisfaction that you are part of a wonderful team of people who are doing something amazing for local wildlife!
WHAT WE EXPECT FROM YOU – Once we add your name to the duty rota we expect you to attend and stay until all of the cleaning and feeding duties are done. (Shift hours are 9.30am to approximately 3pm. Although this can vary according to season. We are much busier during spring and summer.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a small home based rescue, not a large animal centre and at least 80% of our intake is common garden birds, so please bear that in mind when applying.
