Volunteering makes a real difference to Friends of the Lake District and much of our work is only possible because of the help we receive from our volunteers.

Volunteers bring a whole range of different skills and interests to our work and you do not have to be a landscape expert to help; just bring your enthusiasm and we will supply the cake!


Volunteering with Friends of the Lake District gives you a chance to meet like-minded people, make new friends, learn new skills and make a real difference to a landscape so many people love.

Volunteering with Friends of the Lake District is very flexible depending on how much time you are able to commit. We appreciate all contributions, however great or small.


We have a range of roles to choose from whether you prefer outdoors-get-your-hands-dirty conservation jobs, meeting and talking to the public about our work, office- or desk-based tasks. Every role provides the opportunity to add real value to the delivery of our charitable aims. And did we mention the cake?!
