Recruitment, support and training of volunteers to support all the Penwith Landscape Partnership projects as required.
Pennwydh an Gwella or Outstanding Penwith supports all twelve of the other Penwith Landscape Partnership projects by attracting volunteers to the programme, and supporting these through training and other activities.
Volunteers are at the heart of the programme, and we are offering a wide variety of volunteer roles to appeal to all interests - including outdoors practical work, historical research, computer skills, and local landscape character assessments. The project is cross-cutting and provides essential support to deliver the PLP project activities whilst also providing training and learning opportunities for a wide range of people from Penwith and beyond. People of all ages and abilities will be the main beneficiaries, together with the natural and historical environments; in particular ancient sites, access routes, neglected areas of semi-natural habitat and poorly maintained Cornish hedges. Farmers and landowners will also receive supervised help to carry out conservation work.
Overall, we aim to recruit 300 volunteers by December 2022.
We wish for our volunteers to benefit from volunteering with us, and as such we offer a range of free training courses designed to allow volunteers to build their skills, and enjoy volunteering with us.
