Volunteer projects in Wales
International volunteer projects in Wales
Volunteers from the UK are welcome to join one of our international projects in Wales. Every year, we organise:
- weekend projects
- two-week projects
- longer volunteering opportunities
We work with local community organisations to create projects that really make a difference.
Most projects require leaders, so if you want more of a challenge, we can train you to be a project leader.
Why not spend a weekend with a group of volunteers from across the UK and beyond? Some examples of projects....
- Helping convert the people of Cardiff to Fairtrade products
- Protecting some moorland at Afan Forest
- Building dry-stone walls at Felin Uchaf in north Wales
Weekend projects are a great way of trying out international volunteering for the first time. They might help you to prepare for a more challenging experience overseas.We have two environmental projects planned at the Green Valley project in Rhondda Cynon Taff in June and September. Here's some more information and an application form .
We arrange around 25 two-week international volunteer projects in Wales every year. Volunteers come from across the world to give their time to Welsh communities. We reserve places on these projects for volunteers from the UK. Some examples of projects....
- Organising play activities with an international twist for young people in the Rhondda Valley
- Helping Carmarthenshire County Council and Flintshire Coastal Rangers to build parts of the All-Wales Coastal Path
Longer term opportunities
We have opportunities for people to volunteer in Wales for three to twelve months. Long-term placements in recent years have included leading environmental projects and supporting students with disabilities at Swansea University.
We will update our list of long term opportunities regularly.
