There are lots of different ways you could give your time to help us in our mission to protect amphibians and reptiles! We aim to make volunteering with us as fun and rewarding as possible, so that you get as much out of it as the wildlife you are helping.
You don’t always need knowledge or experience to get started, and we can often tailor volunteering posts around your needs and interests whether it be practical work digging ponds, helping our education team on a session or using your IT skills to help improve our web presence.
Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Froglife’s Active Conservation Team in Peterborough is on the look out for volunteers to help run our sessions for young offenders. We are looking for volunteers who are passionate about being outside – whether on Hampton Nature Reserve, our allotment, a park or community garden – with a belief in giving young people a second chance in life. Working on the project is a great way to learn new skills, meet interesting people and make a big difference to your local community.
Sessions run from Tuesdays to Saturdays, and last 3 hours. A free Disclosure Barring Service check (a DBS check, formally known as a CRB check) and training on supporting vulnerable young people is available through the YMCA’s Better Together project, and will be required before you can start volunteering.
To have a chat about the sessions and how you can help, get in touch with our Conservation Officer, Stuart Park: 01733 602102 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you love being outdoors, enjoy inspiring young people and thrive on making a practical difference to gardens or other habitats, Green Pathways is the perfect project for you.
We are currently looking for hardy volunteers to help with all aspects of the project from fundraising to promotion but especially to work alongside the young people. Training in working with vulnerable teenagers will be provided along with appropriate DBS checks. Other training needs will be discussed with individual volunteers and provided if possible.
- youth worker assistants volunteers – assisting the project officer in working outdoors with groups of teenagers.
- project assistant volunteer – a more involved role working closely with the project officer on all aspects of Green Pathways including planning, delivering and preparing for groups.
