Volunteering for Children & Young People

We can provide bespoke environmental volunteering opportunities for primary and secondary school groups and children with special educational needs.

Whether you’d like your group to plant trees, create habitats for nature or learn more about wildlife, we can work with you to deliver projects that make a real difference.

Schools Volunteering at Gravetye

We have worked with Sackville School, Imberhorne School, Lingfield College, University of Brighton Ecology Department and scout groups in 2023.

We are keen to expand our programme to reach children and young people who would benefit from spending time outdoors. There is potential for secondary school pupils to achieve John Muir Discovery Award (minimum 25 hours volunteering) and for pupils undertaking Duke of Edinburgh Awards to carry out community service with the charity.

If you work with a group that would like to make a difference for Sussex wildlife and the environment, please contact us – kari.thomas@wrgc.org.uk
