Volunteer at The Helix

Volunteer With Us at The Helix

"It has brought me out of my shell as it is something I would not have considered being a part of initially as I felt it was way outside my comfort zone. In conclusion, though to be honest I have loved every minute" John, Helix Green Team Volunteer

The Helix welcomes volunteers throughout the year.

No experience or minimum commitment required.

Initially, we explore your interests and inspiration for considering volunteering at The Helix.Then we tell you our opportunities and requirements.

Following this, you decide if you wish to join one or more of our teams. We are now offering four volunteering programmes including:


  • The Helix Green Team
  • Walk Leaders for Short Health Walks
  • Event Volunteers


The Helix Green Team

The Helix Green Team is open to all on Tuesday morning. If you are interested in some outdoor practical conservation volunteering within the Helix Park then this is the group for you. The parks staff enjoy planning, preparing and supervising these sessions with the volunteers. With all hands on dirt, we get so much more done and always see a real benefit to our mornings efforts. Plus we enjoy sharing out the delicious cakes prepared by Jason, the Visitors Centre Chef. Bring your enthusiasm, weather appropriate clothing and wear sturdy shoes.

No booking is required. Sessions last from 10am - 1pm. Meet us at the Pink bus stop by the Kelpies Car Park.

To get more information please complete the form below. We look forward to hearing from you!


Walk Leaders for Short Health Walks

We are looking for volunteers to expand our health walks and help out at our busy existing groups. This is ideal for people who wish to combine getting out and active, whilst being sociable and helping others. If you have a spare hour each week to come for a walk, then please contact Barbara McConnell at She will provide you with information, training and support.  

For more details and to register your interest for one of these three programmes, please complete the form below.

Event Volunteers 

The Helix has a number of events on in the park that need volunteers to make them a success. Previous events that our volunteers have been a vital part of include Fire & Light, The Big Picnic and Horsepower. If you'd like to be a part of future events, which help bring the community together, please get in touch via the form below.
