Our volunteering programme is an experience of working together to supply, organise and create within our busy timber yard and workshop. Typically volunteers spend their days riding our vans* on wood collections, pulling nails and stacking piles in the yard, or training and making in the workshop. The work is physical, sociable and meditative. We aim to include and empower in everything we do.
We provide a healthy lunch, hot drinks and all the training and safety equipment you'll need. Volunteering here is popular, but if you get in touch now we can get you inducted within four weeks.

Our volunteering opportunities are currently only on week days between 9am and 5pm.

"Love my volunteering!"

"It took a long time to find somewhere I would like to volunteer. I feel welcomed every time I go to BWRP, I met new people, learnt new skils and I always await for my Thursdays with pleasure. It’s nice to be doing something different every week as well. Love my volunteering!"
