Residential volunteering is your chance to have a break, try something new or get some experience for your CV.

There are over 40 different places to stay and hundreds of things to do. You can spend a week or more on a reserve, and you can do it alone or bring a friend.

We'll provide you with accommodation, new skills and some great memories.

We have highlighted a selection of opportunities further down the page.

If you'd like a taster of what it's like to be a residential volunteer, you can watch this short video:

Volunteering with the RSPB enables you to contribute, to do your bit to help wildlife and the work of the RSPB but the big plus is that on a high tide you get to wash your feet.
