Birmingham City Council

Volunteering In Birmingham Parks

The Parks and Nature Conservation division is committed to assisting community and voluntary sector groups to take a greater interest and active role in the improvement, management, use, access and protection of the greenspaces and facilities that we manage.

We recognise that there can be situations in which volunteers help can make an appropriate and significant contribution to the work and service objectives of Parks and in particular the Ranger Service.

Who can volunteer?

As a general rule volunteers working with Parks must be over 17 years of age. Young people under the age of 17 are welcome to attend events and activities but cannot become a volunteer.

Volunteers may be described as individuals who put their experience, knowledge and skills at the disposal of an organisation, free of charge, with the primary aim of helping an organisation to achieve its service objectives.

We are committed to developing and maintaining an organisation in which differing ideas, abilities, backgrounds and needs are fostered and valued, and where those with diverse backgrounds and experiences are able to participate and contribute.

Volunteers will be involved in work which adds value to that of existing staff.
