Become a Volunteer

At DSWF we pride ourselves on low administration costs and generous funding to save wildlife and we can only achieve this with the constant help and invaluable support of our volunteers. As we continue to develop the work of the Foundation, our need for additional support grows too.

CAN YOU HELP?

We have an urgent need for:

 Volunteering with DSWF

At DSWF we pride ourselves on low administration costs and generous funding to save wildlife and we can only achieve this with the constant help and invaluable support of our volunteers.

Many of our volunteers have been with us for a number of years, and some are new to the Foundation. Our current volunteers take on a variety of office roles such as data entry, admin, helping in our gallery and processing orders for our online shop, as well as helping at events by driving, loading and unloading and setting up, greeting supporters and helping to promote the Foundation and artwork for sale.

We do not currently have any vacancies for volunteering in our office, however if you are interested in being considered in the future please do get in touch with Natalie Archer on 01483 272323 or email here  for more information.

There are also a number of overseas volunteering opportunities through the projects that we support. For more on volunteering in Zambia click here

Finally, we would like to make a special dedication to our past and present volunteers who so generously give up their spare time for wildlife and DSWF – we really couldn’t do it without you!
