Poole Enviroteers

Poole Enviroteers is a council-led volunteering initiative. Poole Enviroteers aspires to get all members of the Poole community volunteering and taking part in their local open space environments.

Poole Enviroteers promotes the work of local ‘Friends Of’ groups volunteering events, as well as opportunities across the Borough which are linked to environmental change. This includes opportunities at our self-funded new to you shop and the ability to support individuals in running their own litter picks.

Poole Enviroteers hopes to achieve transformative environmental change across the Borough of Poole through regular and innovative volunteering opportunities for all ages and abilities, and represent the events and activities the people of Poole love to carry out.

Cleaning up the Environment

These opportunities are all based around helping to clean up the environment of Poole. We don't all litter, but we do all see litter daily. Why not build it in to your daily or weekly routine to volunteer with one of the opportunities below or run your own litter pick?

Come along to any of these events which are all about taking action and working with 'Friends Of' and community groups to improve the areas that they love and work on. These are always great to attend and usually run weekly or monthly.

All the groups are open to welcoming new volunteers, you could even volunteer with a few groups and see which group works best for you. From the seaside views at Pinecliff, to the community gardens of Oakdale, there really is a way to take action in every community!

Poole Heathlands

Heathland is a true treasure and is under constant threat. Help Poole to ensure it remains a haven for rare wildlife and an asset for our community by volunteering with the Poole Heathlands team on one of their many volunteer events. They regularly plan summer and winter works and they always provide tea and biscuits, these aren't to be missed!
