Volunteering in the Westmorland Dales 

The Westmorland Dales Landscape Partnership Scheme has an exciting range of 21 projects in 3 main categories – Natural Heritage, Cultural Heritage and Connecting Heritage, many of which have opportunities for volunteers. 

Why Volunteer

This scheme is only possible because of the help we receive from volunteers, who bring a range of different skills and interests to our work, and help demonstrate to the Heritage Fund that people are engaged and benefitting from the scheme and its projects. You do not have to be an expert in heritage to help; just bring your enthusiasm and we will supply the training.
