Volunteer with Sustrans

We have fantastic volunteers across the UK who are making a real difference in their local area. We'd love you to join us.

Our volunteers are what make Sustrans special.

They look after the National Cycle Network. They help local people to walk and cycle.

They improve our green spaces for wildlife. And they inspire young people in schools to get active.

Our volunteers are helping to create a better environment for us all.

We'd love your help too.

Even if you've got just an hour to give. Or you can give us your time on a regular basis.

We'd love to hear from you.

Sustrans volunteering and Covid-19

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we have suspended all volunteering activities that involve leaving your home.

You are very welcome to apply for any of our current volunteering opportunities.

However, there may be a delay in the processing of your application. And you may not be able to get started in the role until regular volunteering starts back up.
