Voluntary action plays a huge part in the day to day running of the Trust’s projects and in enriching our work.
Volunteers support all of our programmes of work, from school visits to helping with our Wellbeing project, our events and the practical conservation work undertaken on the nature reserve. Our projects such as Changing Chalk and Nature Links also have many volunteering opportunities.
Some roles can be undertaken on an adhoc basis, while others require more commitment and will involve some training. We try to tailor our volunteering opportunities so that volunteers benefit from giving their help - whether by improving their work experience and CVs, or from getting involved with a friendly, like minded group of people.

Fundraisers - Join Us!
The Trust is going through an exciting phase of development and we are looking for new trustees and volunteers with particular experience in community fundraising to help us develop and deliver a completely new strategy for fundraising.
The Railway Land is at the heart of Lewes and our wild green space is enjoyed by a huge range of local people and visitors. We want to make everyone’s experience even better by offering exciting new inclusive activities and opportunities as well as continuing to build on our core offerings of education, wellbeing and environmental projects. At the same time we aim to deepen the bond between the Railway Land Wildlife Trust and our community.
