Please respond by emailing before 7 May 2024 with a short paragraph about your experiences and why you would like to volunteer with our team.

We will also be running two sessions in May 2024 to provide those interested with a chance to meet our team, hear about our work and find out whether volunteering with us is something you’d like to do!

Dales Fell-being Project

The second course of the Dales Fell-being project will start on 13 April 2024 and is part-funded by Sport England’s small grants programme. It will support a group of 18-30-year-olds to join us for six free sessions in the Yorkshire Dales to build the skills and confidence to access the National Park for running, recreation and activity.
