Who can volunteer with Tattenhall Wildlife Group ?
Volunteering your time is a great way to learn new skills, meet people and expand your horizons – what will you try?
What age do I have to be?
As long as you can make a useful and safe contribution there is no age limitation. All activities are suitable for your age and won’t harm you in any way.
If you are under 18, your parent or guardian must give permission for you to volunteer and you must be supervised by an adult and not left alone. We cannot always provide supervision so this may restrict younger people to volunteering with their parent or guardian.
How much time do I need to give?
At present meetings are scheduled for Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings. Sometimes weekends are used for larger projects (such as tree planting) when members of the local community can get involved. You can decide how regularly you want to work,
Will I be trained?
Yes, but what this training looks like will be different for different roles. You’ll probably learn most by talking to other volunteers. You will receive a thorough induction to your role so that you are confident in what we are asking you to do.
Once I start volunteering with you how I will be kept in touch with what’s going on?
Mostly by word of mouth, but don’t forget to check the TWiG website and Facebook page.
Will I be insured?
Tattenhall Wildlife Group has insurance cover for legal liability claims, either by or against volunteers working for the Group, resulting from damage to property or personal injury.
