We need you!

We need your help to spread the word about SongBird Survival at the shows and events we attend all over the UK. 

What will I be doing?

Read more

We do not expect volunteers to spend long hours standing around; we do expect you to have fun and enjoy the event alongside helping out and learning more about SBS and becoming one of the team!

We need you to:

  • help run our event on the day
  • provide information to visitors
  • spread the word about our important research work

Experienced SBS trustees, volunteers or staff members will usually set up the event and be in attendance for the duration of the event.

 

What skills do I need?

We are looking for volunteers who are friendly and approachable with the ability to communicate well. We don’t expect volunteers to know everything but a passion for the work of SongBird Survival is important.

We have all manner and ages of people visit; some don’t want to speak with anyone, some want to tell you about their experiences, others have specific enquiries. Some want to buy something, others want to join SBS as a member. It is very interesting and varied work!

 

What benefits can I expect?

SBS provides any tickets for show entry and tea and coffee, but travel (and accommodation) are the volunteer’s responsibility. For many events, we recommend that food is brought with you as purchasing food on site can be expensive at shows.  Some events include food!

 

Time commitment

Read more

Events are all different but we wouldn't usually ask for more than 6-8 hours, and not all of that time in one go!  Breaks, refreshments and time for yourself to enjoy the event are essential.  Some volunteers are very enthusiastic and will offer more than one day if the event allows!
