Urban Green Newcastle could not function as we do without our army of wonderful volunteers, who help us to make our parks and greenspaces the best they can be for both people and wildlife to enjoy.
You don’t need any particular skills or experience to be an Urban Green volunteer. All you need is enthusiasm for the task in hand!
There is a volunteering role for everyone. Check out the opportunities available below.

Volunteer Work Parties
Join Urban Green Newcastle and help us by clearing pathways, tending flowerbeds, repairing fences, or keeping the parks litter free. No previous experience is required, but a willingness to get stuck in and work as part of a team is essential.
Self Led Park Volunteering
Our Parks volunteers work independently, or within a group to look after their local park. This volunteer role allows you to volunteer in your local park at a time that suits you, on gardening, maintenance and conservation tasks.
Nature Education Volunteer
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to work alongside our Education Officer, helping run fun, interactive activities for school children, families, and the local community.
Urban Green Clean
Urban Green Clean is sponsored by the LGA Foundation and volunteers are needed in all parks across the City. Those signing up to help will be issued with litter pickers, gloves, bin bags and hi-visibility vests. They will also be given instructions to keep themselves safe. There are no set times or guidelines about how often volunteers should take part, just whenever they can help.
