Volunteering

 

We are currently taking on new volunteers aged 14 and over (August 2021).

Volunteers always required for our Elstree and Radlett fields. Unfortunately, we are unable to take on volunteers at our Sundon site as we are unable to provide supervision there.

We are currently looking for people to support our open day sessions on Sunday. Our visitors book to meet and groom one of teh miniature Shetlands and take them for a (supervised) walk in our woodland area. Volunteers help to facilitate this experience.

No horse/pony/yard care experience required if you're willing to learn. The job can be physical so please bear this in mind (hay and straw pushing, mucking out stables, field poo picking, moving horse food and water buckets, horse grooming, etc, in all weathers!).

You will be required to visit the sanctuary for an induction session to chat to the founder, Julie, and a couple of our volunteers. This is for you to get a feel of the sanctuary and to see what the work may entail. If you're still interested, please complete a volunteer form (will be given to you on site) and hand it over to one of our volunteers or Julie. 

All volunteers aged 16 and under will need to have their parent/guardians permission (signature on the form). Parent/guardians will also need to volunteer with their charge for the first few sessions so that all parties know what the voluntary work entails.

Contact us if you want to volunteer.
