Volunteer With Us at The Helix
"It has brought me out of my shell as it is something I would not have considered being a part of initially as I felt it was way outside my comfort zone. In conclusion, though to be honest I have loved every minute"

The Helix welcomes volunteers throughout the year.
No experience or minimum commitment required.
Initially, we explore your interests and inspiration for
considering volunteering at The Helix.Then we tell you our
opportunities and requirements.
Following this, you decide if you wish to join one or more of
our teams. We are now offering four volunteering programmes
- The Helix Green Team
- Fire & Light Event Volunteers
- Walk Leaders for Short Health Walks
The Helix Green Team
The Helix Green Team is open to all on Tuesday morning and
occasionally Sunday. If you are interested in some outdoor
practical conservation volunteering within the Helix Park then this
is the group for you. The parks staff enjoy planning, preparing and
supervising these sessions with the volunteers. With all hands on
dirt, we get so much more done and always see a real benefit to our
mornings efforts. Plus we enjoy sharing out the delicious cakes
prepared by Jason, the Visitors Centre Chef. Bring your enthusiasm,
weather appropriate clothing and wear sturdy shoes.
No booking is required. Sessions last from 10am - 1pm. Meet us
at the Pink bus stop by the Kelpies Car Park.
