Volunteering opportunities 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"
John, Helix Green Team Volunteer
The Helix welcomes volunteers throughout the year. We are now
offering three volunteering programmes
- The Helix Green Team
- The Employer Supported Volunteering
- The Helix Ambassadors
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.
Employer Supported Volunteering
Are you interested in a day out of the office and in the
park? Many businesses provide this support from their staff to
charities such as ourselves through their Corporate Social
Responsibility programmes. The Helix are delighted to welcome one
business per month the opportunity to have a fully supervised and
planned day of volunteering with us. If you are interested please
confirm this with your management then get in touch with us by
completing the form below.
You could be part of bringing the best customer experience to
the visitors of The Helix, home of the Kelpies. This is an outdoor
public facing role, where you would be expected to proactively
assist people in the park. You will receive training and support
from The Helix team. It is important that visitors know all the
different aspects they can enjoy whilst here. You will be
representing The Helix, your town and your country for our foreign
We need you during school holidays. The shifts last 3 ½ hour on
days that you choose. Because you are representing the helix, there
is a selection process in place.

three programmes, please complete the form below and Helen
Morrison, the volunteer co-ordinator, will get in touch to arrange
a chat with you.
