Volunteering

We are a growing not-for-profit community group and always happy to have more members and volunteers.  

Our membership are the people who are on our mailing list and attend our events and help us by volunteering.

Our volunteers help with administration, events, projects – swift and hedgehogs for example, leafleting, online technical help and many others.  You choose what you can help with.

We are hoping, in due course, to build a database of volunteers holding appropriate information such as volunteering preferences and skills which will allow us to reach out to you when opportunities arise, however, in the interim we will publish general and specific opportunities on this page and would appreciate any help that you can offer. Thank you.


Non-Specific Volunteer Opportunities

If you willing to be added to our database of general volunteers, please press the Volunteer button below to be presented with a very short form to complete. You will then be emailed a link allowing you to fill in more details about your skills and interests, at your convenience, so that we can try and match you up with suitable opportunities as and when they arise:


Specific Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

Ladder owners with experience required for installing Swift Boxes

Location: Chiswick houses and public buildings.

Date & Time: April – August

We have swift boxes that need to be installed in specific areas across Chiswick. There will be two boxes per site at a height of 4-5 metres or higher. We are looking for volunteers who have long ladders and competent at climbing and drilling. We are happy for volunteers to do as many or as few installations as they are willing to commit time to doing.


Hedgehog Camera Installations

Location: Chiswick Grove Park area (TBC)

Date & Time: Thur June 20th 9:00am – 4:00pm

We will be installing 30 trail cameras across areas of Chiswick as part of a national survey run by Zoological Society of London, PTES and British Hedgehog Preservation Society. We need volunteers to help us install cameras with Zoological Society of London. This is a national survey to be carried out over a 4 year period. The setting up of cameras need to be precise so the survey is the same across the country. Training will be given on the day. Volunteers can attend the whole day or a specific area. Maximum 10 volunteers.
