They run preventative campaigns, helping their communities learn how to stop waste becoming litter in the first place.
Some work in a group, others work individually on a specific project, fitting in their volunteering around their other work, study or home commitments. Whatever your situation, there are aspects of volunteering you can take part in to support the Litter Free cause, and we’re very grateful for all that our volunteers do.
We’re lucky to have a growing number of people who contribute their skills to our current projects in various ways. Often these volunteers fit in their work for us in an odd hour here and there around their other commitments, and concentrate in a particular location which they know well. As well as those who help with specific projects, we also have volunteers who enjoy doing something different each time, like helping out with school visits, marketing and PR, or speaking to businesses about sustainable steps including the #RefillDorset scheme.
If any of these roles sounds like it’s something you’d like to join in with we’d love to hear from you so get in touch.
There are more than 50 different litter picking and beach care groups across Dorset. Litter Free have been working together with volunteer groups along the Dorset coastline since Litter Free Coast and Sea was formed, supporting their collective efforts and sharing their achievements. By working together to share knowledge and build connections we all benefit, which is why our regular working group meetings (and Zoom calls more recently!) have been a fantastic way to build a Dorset-wide community of passionate people that share a common goal.
