Warley Woods Community Trust depends on its volunteers whether acting as a Trustee, helping with maintenance or at an event.  Whether you have one hour to give or many – we hope you will find something at Warley Woods that you can get involved with and that you will find rewarding.

Being A Trustee

The Board of Trustees are members of the Trust who come from the community surrounding Warley Woods. They are volunteers and are voted in by members of Warley Woods Community Trust.  They also act as Directors of the limited company.  They meet once a month on the third Tuesday at 7pm.  Trustees also give time on a subgroup and as we have a small staff Trustees are often key volunteers giving time to support events or other activities.

If you are interested in finding out more about the role of a Trustee at Warley Woods, please contact us and we can arrange for you to meet with one of the existing Trustees so that you can get more idea of what is involved.


These are the meetings where detailed work is done.  The subgroups are made up of both Trustees and non-Trustee volunteers.  Get in touch if you would like to visit a Sub-group meeting to see if you would

Maintenance Sessions

Volunteers meet regularly to take on physical tasks on site.  Anyone is welcome at any session.  Come regularly or once in a while – extra pairs of hands always help.  Meet at the office.  Tools and gloves provided.  Wear strong footwear and old clothes!

You will be emailed the meet up point for your group - it may not be the office.
