Many of the projects delivered by the Revitalising Redesdale Landscape Partnership programme would not have happened without the brilliant volunteers, residents and visitors who took part. These included volunteers who undertook field and desk-based research, investigations and training through the Lost Redesdale activities led by Northumberland National Park Authority; volunteers who planted trees and helped restore meadows and peat bogs through the Natural Redesdale projects with Northumberland Wildlife Trust and the Tyne Rivers Trust. From researching the history of the Battle of Otterburn to restoring Whitelee Moor’s peatland, there were plenty of opportunities for everyone.
Although the Revitalising Redesdale Programme finished in September 2022 there are many groups and organisations who continue to undertake work and projects in Redesdale and have volunteering opportunities for you to get involved with.

Volunteering is a great way to get involved with lots of different projects and organisations. It is a chance to learn new skills, meet people and give back to your community whilst doing something you enjoy.
