The South Downs National Park Authority supports several core areas of volunteering:

  • South Downs National Park Volunteers – comprised of over 350 volunteers who deliver landscape and wildlife conservation, and community access projects in support of the National Park priorities.
  • South Downs Youth Action – a volunteering programme tailored to young people aged 16-25.
  • Microvolunteering – a quick and easy way for anyone and everyone to make a difference in the South Downs (and beyond!)
  • A network of wider volunteering groups across the National Park.

The video below celebrates some of our fantastic volunteers and the difference that they continue to make:
