Poole’s Open Space Volunteer Initiative
Poole Enviroteers is a council-led volunteering initiative. Poole Enviroteers aspires to get all members of the Poole community volunteering and taking part in their local open space environments. Poole Enviroteers promotes the work of local ‘Friends Of’ and community groups, as well as opportunities across the Borough which are linked to environmental change. This includes opportunities at our self-funded ‘new to you’ shop and the ability to support individuals in taking action in their local open spaces.
Poole Enviroteers hopes to achieve transformative environmental change across the Borough of Poole through regular and innovative volunteering opportunities for all ages and abilities, and represent the events and activities the people of Poole love to carry out.
One of the ways we do this is by providing the opportunity for residents of Poole to bring their volunteer ideas to us and we will look to support and facilitate these ideas across the Borough of Poole. So if you have an idea, contact us today! We also provide the resources, support and waste collection for community litter picks which you can find out more about on our activity diary via the button below.
If you are a student at Arts University Bournemouth or Bournemouth University you can also find our volunteer opportunities as part of your Students Unions volunteer websites.
