Environmental Activities Volunteering - Basildon

← Back to search results


This is a very versatile role. One day you could be helping to revive a Public Park, School, or Heritage Site, and another day you could be helping with local environmental activities, such ‘Make do & Mend’ or a Community Eco Café. 

We have a volunteering role for anybody who has a few hours free. You can join in for one-off activities or continue to come along to each event. It’s up to you.

With your help and input, we want to create activities in local spaces, that will bring us together in shaping our community into a space where we can increase civic pride and help celebrate Basildon, Wickford & Billericay, our people & our stories.

Volunteering is all year round. Some activities will be indoors and some outdoors.

Come and enjoy being part of a new team, make new friends and contribute to your very own neighbourhood.

You will finish your day with a sense of achievement and will be able to share your new experiences with your loved ones and immediate community.

·         Complete a volunteer form on the day you join
