Become a volunteer

We can’t save Scotland’s red squirrels without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers.

Volunteering with Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels is a fantastic way to connect with nature and support your local area’s special native wildlife. You don’t have to be an expert to join in, and all our volunteers are provided with the training and resources they need to participate.

Find out more about available volunteering roles in your area by contacting us or checking the vacancies on the Scottish Wildlife Trust website.

To become a Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels volunteer, you’ll need to complete a registration form so that we can get in touch with you.

Sign up to volunteer

As lead partner, the Scottish Wildlife Trust is the employer of all Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels staff, and manages the project’s volunteers. Once you have been provisionally accepted onto a role, we’ll arrange a face to face meeting where we will ask you for a few more details so that the Trust can honour its duty of care.

Once registration is complete, you will officially become a Scottish Wildlife Trust volunteer. This means that you’ll be covered by the Trust’s Public Liability Insurance for all your volunteering activities, and you will be eligible to claim volunteer expenses.
