Volunteer

Friends of the Peak District (and CPRE South Yorkshire) was inspired and founded by volunteers passionate about countryside protection. And today volunteering is still key to our effectiveness and achievements. We have many volunteers of all ages, from a range of backgrounds and working on a really broad range of subjects. Some for a couple of hours a week, some for one-off events.


Whether you have a few hours, a day, a week or a month to give, there are plenty of opportunities to help.


We're looking for...

  • Volunteers to help with countryside planning scrutiny or campaigning, click here.
  • Volunteers to help with our Peak District Boundary Walk, click here
  • Volunteers to help with fundraising, events management or marketing, click here.

Do you want to gain specialist skills?

If you'd like to learn about archiving, conservation and digitising an archive, or to help out with the Friends of the Peak District stash of nationally important documents we'd love to hear from you. We're hoping to create a national historical record of our fight for the first ever national park.

We have hundreds of glass slides, photographs, 35mm slides, architectural drawings, maps, correspondence, and publicity materials dating back to the start of our organisation in 1924. We are applying for funding to restore and preserve it.

If you'd like to help, please contact Julie in the office on 0114 279 2655 or at julie@friendsofthepeak.org.uk
