Providing powerful engaging volunteer experiences that make a difference

We have lots of volunteering opportunities at Avon Tyrrell, we welcome individuals for a few hours, corporate groups for a day or regular committed hours.

We need help with everything from clearing paths, replacing fences and even helping us to put up a new shelter. We’ve got a never-ending list of jobs! 

By volunteering to help us, you’re supporting UK Youth, a leading charity with a vision that all young people are equipped to thrive and empowered to contribute at every stage of their lives.  We provide fantastic development opportunities for young people at Avon Tyrrell, we empower young people from across the country to reach their full potential. We provide young people with the opportunity to participate in high quality experiences that deliver learning and personal development. Our aim is to increase the accessibility and quality of outdoor learning for young people across the UK- helping them to experience, learn and develop. 

The support we get from our volunteers enables us as a youth charity to reinvest in young people and provides more opportunities for them.


For corporate groups, here's an example of your day:

A sample CSR Day could involve:

  • 09:00: Arrive at Avon Tyrrell for tea, coffee and breakfast rolls. Welcome and overview about Avon Tyrrell and UK Youth.
  • 09:30-12:15: Work alongside members of the Avon Tyrrell maintenance team to develop an area of the site to the benefit of the young people that visit. These vary and can include
  • 12:15-13:00: A hot lunch will be served in our main house or on the terrace in the Summer giving you some time to refuel.
  • 13:00-15:30: If you have opted for a full day of volunteering then work will continue at 13:00. If you have opted to incorporate a team building activity, you can relax a bit and work on developing your team for a 90 minute session at 13:45.
  • 15:30: Finish your day with tea,coffee and cake plus a huge thank you from Avon Tyrrell. 


We ask for a contribution of £20 per person for corporate volunteers, this helps to cover the costs of the catering and additional staff resources needed to support your visit.

    From office away days, to routine or specialised team building events, Avon Tyrrell can deliver it all and offer you something unique and special.

    We have been supporting Avon Tyrrell Youth Activity Centre over many years with restoration, renovation and general upkeep projects. Apart from our work being very much appreciated, it is always a good opportunity for us as a team to build better working relationships, whilst at the same time helping a very worthwhile cause. Not only were we able to support a fantastic charity, but this was a really rewarding day for us all giving something back to the community, doing something out of the ordinary in a fabulous environment, and at the same time enjoying meeting people from different parts of our business and from the charity.

    Thank you for the another brilliant day!
