The Living Wandle Scheme has a training programme available to volunteers involved with any of the projects. The aim of the training programme is to equip volunteers with the necessary skills and certifications to fulfill their roles on projects and to strengthen the existing skills of people already volunteering along the river.

Examples of training our volunteers have received in the past are:

  • NPTC safe use of chainsaw and equipment
  • Audio capture and digital recording
  • Wildlife recording
  • Application of pesticides to tackle invasive species

We have a number of projects which we need enthusiastic volunteers to get involved with!

Take a look at the project pages below to decide if you might like to get involved and receive access to training: Discovering the Source, Morden Hall Park Wetlands, Wandle Vistas, Wandle Rain Gardens, Wandle Mills, Wandle Watchers Wildlife Recording

If you are interested in receiving training and becoming a volunteer or would like more information please contact the Living Wandle Team at or 07500 073049.

For even more opportunities to volunteer in the wider Wandle Valley, please visit the Volunteer Pages.


This project is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
