About the Woodland Trust
The Woodland Trust is one of the UK’s leading conservation charities. We have over 500,000 members and supporters and more than 1,000 sites all over the UK.
We believe life’s better with trees. We protect and campaign on behalf of the UK’s woods, plant more trees, and restore ancient woodland, for the benefit of wildlife and people.
The woods in and around the built up areas of Livingston have potential but are currently suffering from issues such as fly tipping and litter. This community engagement role is to encourage local people to be more connected to the woodlands in a positive way. The volunteers will connect with local community groups, other organisations and the local authority, raising awareness of opportunities to engage with the site and the local activity planned.
This volunteering role would ideally be suited to someone who works part-time, has recently retired, or who has the time and can commit to the role. Access to your own transport is required (travel expenses will be reimbursed, further details will be provided by your volunteer manager).
