We're a winner of The Queen's Award for Voluntary Service

We're thrilled to have been named as a winner of the prestigious Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, however we couldn't have done it without our volunteers, thank you!

This is the highest national award presented to local volunteer groups across the UK and is the equivalent of the MBE.  It's presented to exceptional groups that are volunteer-led and whose levels of initiative and impact make a significant difference to beneficiaries in their communities

If you would like to volunteer here at Walton Firs then take a look below at how you can get involved.

Service Crew


Walton Firs is supported by a large number of volunteers who join us on a 2 monthly rotation in groups that are known as 'Service Crew'. These are made up of groups who range from current and previous scout and guide leaders, explorer scouts, cadets or anyone keen to become involved.


We are very lucky to have a range of skills within our separate Service Crews. Each crew can assist us with site maintenance, running activities, customer service and generally keeping the site clean, safe and tidy.


We always welcome new volunteers, so if you would like to get involved at Walton Firs and either have a group of like minded individuals to form your own crew, or would like to join an existing crew, please just let us know.

We hope to hear from you!

Work Experience / Duke of Edinburgh Award


Here at Walton Firs we like to support our local community as best we can. That often means helping those who are looking for either work experience or Duke of Edinburgh Award residentials and volunteering weeks.


We will give you full site training to allow you to shadow our instructor and maintenance teams. The training and aims of your time with us will depend on the season that you attend. May to August is likely to be more activity based while September to April will be more maintenance and construction.


With prior planning we can also organise for you to complete a specific task or project by yourself. This would be supported by a member of our staff where necessary.

A good example is the totem pole which was repainted by one of our work experience volunteers. It is now a focal point on the site.

Company Team Building Volunteering


If you are a company looking to support a local charity then this is a great way to help out.


Whether you have a group of willing volunteers or are looking to do some Team Building with your colleagues, maybe you would like to undertake some volunteering at Walton Firs. If you and your colleagues are happy to paint, laminate signs, build fences, trim overgrown hedges or just want to be outside and get stuck in to any job then we know just how to get the most out of your time here whilst helping the Walton Firs Team.
