Volunteering in any capacity is a great way to share your enthusiasm, skills and ideas whilst having fun and meeting likeminded people.

To register as a Bumblebee Conservation Trust volunteer complete our Volunteer Registration Form, available in Word or PDF format. Please send your completed form to volunteering@bumblebeeconservation.org

By volunteering for the Bumblebee Conservation Trust you would also be making a positive contribution to the conservation of bumblebees, wildflowers and the many other parts of our natural world that depend on bees. To read our Volunteer Vision, which describes the work already done for us by volunteers and how we aim to support volunteers in future, click here (opens as pdf file).

Volunteers are vital to our work at the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
With your help we can spread our message about the importance of bumblebees and how to help their survival to everyone across the UK. It doesn’t matter how much you already know about bees because there are opportunities to learn and we have roles to suit every level of expertise.

All you really need is enthusiasm, a love of wildlife and some time.
The pages within this section give information on the different volunteering opportunities that are open to you. Please don’t forget that you can also volunteer as part of our survey schemes or by fundraising for BBCT.

Once you have registered, a member of our outreach team will then get in touch with more information on specific opportunities in your local area. We look forward to working with you soon to conserve Britain’s bumblebees. Your help is greatly appreciated and really will make a difference!

"We are facing a fundamental problem with the decline of bees and other pollinators. They have an absolutely crucial role in pollinating many of our important crops - without them we will face higher food costs and potential shortages."
