Volunteering roles

We need volunteers for everything we do.

If you support the aims of Sustainable Amersham, are over the age of 16, and live in Amersham, Chesham Bois, Little Chalfont and the surrounding villages, you can also join Sustainable Amersham as an active member.

We’re looking for help on projects like Plastic Free Amersham, the Repair Café, biodiversity activities — and you can even propose your own initiatives!

Have a look at the open roles below. Are you interested? Do you have other ideas or want to come to our existing events and help out? Write to us.

We would love to have a chat to discuss how to work together! If your business is a member of 1% for the Planet, this volunteer time will count toward your contribution.
