For over 20 years, Go Volunteer has enjoyed a close link with Rupert’s Wood in Otterburn, welcoming thousands of volunteers, children, and vulnerable adults to learn how to care for the natural world. We’ve aimed to create a safe and accessible place where children and young people can explore and discover trees, bugs and themselves through play, guided investigation and conservation.
Get involved with the city’s youngsters and help to create a fun and educational experience. Our day trips and camps revolve around fun, mud and learning new things. Rupert’s Wood residential are planned by volunteers and Go Volunteer staff alongside the young people wherever possible, ensuring that each visit suits the needs of the children involved.
To prepare the wood for residentials there are conservation tasks which need to be done throughout the year, so we are always looking for new volunteers to join the group.
