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 Sundays. Our visitors book to meet and groom one of the miniature Shetlands and take them for a (supervised) walk in our woodland area. Volunteers help to facilitate this experience.

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). We may ask that parent/guardian will also need to volunteer with their charge for the first few sessions so that all parties know what the voluntary work entails.

ADULT VOLUNTEERS FOR YARD DUTIES

We also need people with some horse/pony experience to help with doing waters (and potentially feeds) at some of our fields, checking electric fencing and changing batteries if necessary, moving hay and straw, mucking out and checking the ponies to make sure that they are in good health.
Own transport a must.

VOLUNTEER HANDYMAN REQUIRED

Looking for a volunteer handyman to join the sanctuary. We have a talented handyman with us already however he only has one pair of hands and there is much to do! If you can help out regularly, don’t mind travelling between our sites and are capable of carrying out stable repairs, building shelters, fencing, digging, chopping, fixing please get in touch

Contact us if you want to volunteer.
