Staffordshire Way Volunteer

Opportunity image

We’re passionate about making the countryside in Staffordshire a better place for everyone to enjoy. Our enthusiastic team of volunteers inspire people to care for the countryside and enjoy the benefits it brings wherever they live.

Volunteering with us is a fantastic way to help us champion environmental issues. To raise awareness of our work we’d love to connect people to the wonderful Staffordshire countryside using the often-forgotten Staffordshire Way walking route.

The 1960s and 70s were something of a golden era for long-distance walkers. Dozens of new routes were plotted, published and promoted, including the Staffordshire Way.

The 95 mile route, which links Mow Cop in the north of the county with Kinver Edge at the furthest south, highlights the varied beauty of Staffordshire but sadly in recent years the route has been somewhat forgotten.

Staffordshire Way volunteers will have an essential role in helping us scope the walk, rewrite the guidebook, organise events and promote activities so we can involve more people in our work.

Our friendly team will provide you with training and support to develop in your role. You’ll gain valuable skills and experience through your volunteering, which could be in event management, communications, project management or dealing with the general public.

This is a home-based role with some travel and attendance at meetings, including online meetings and events. We provide out-of-pocket travel expenses should this be required.
