Our woodland maintenance volunteers help us with building projects, clearing areas and manual labour in our 19 acre woodlands.
To be a woodland volunteer you do not need any experience working outdoors but if you have experience in basic DIY, gardening and landscaping it will be beneficial.
Once a month we hold volunteer days in our woodlands for woodland maintenance - there is no expectation to come along to every day, you will be emailed monthly with the date and if you are free to come along that month just let us know. The volunteering runs in the daytime, usually on the last Friday of the month between 9am and 3pm.

About WAM Youth
We believe that positive relationships and experiences are essential for young people but are not always accessible to them. We value children and young people as individuals and place them at the centre of what we do.
- To help children and young people to build healthy self-esteem and confidence so that in placing value on themselves and on others they are more likely to make behavioural choices that have a positive impact on themselves and those around them.
- To provide activities and safe spaces for children and young people to develop their social and emotional skills and improve physical health for a positive impact on their wellbeing.
- To provide outdoor activities which enable children and young people to learn to manage risk wisely.
- To build sustained positive relationships with children and young people so that they are empowered and motivated to develop positive behaviours.
