We are developing an exciting new project to support volunteers of all ages to help us care for the beautiful landscape of the Northumberland coast and we need your help.

With support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are working together with Northumberland Wildlife Trust, Seahouses Development Trust and Natural England to develop a new project which will look after the sweeping sandy beaches, rolling dunes, village greens and community spaces, farmland and grasslands, which make up our coastal environment.

The project will create ways for local people to look after it by providing training, expenses and support for people who are able to give a little of their free time. Whether a regular weekly commitment, joining a volunteer group, leading guided walks or events or making cakes for meetings or fundraising activities, there will be something for everyone.

If funding is secured, the new Coast Care project will support volunteers of all ages to care for and nurture this exceptional landscape. There will be opportunities for volunteers who want to contribute on their own or as part of a group and those who are able to make a regular commitment as well as those who just have a couple of hours to spare. In short, there will be something for everyone. We are keen to hear from anybody who would be interested in supporting this project as a volunteer.

The project vision is that by working together, we will be able to make a difference forever. If you think you could help, please let us know by completing this questionnaire. All respondents will be entered into a prize draw to win a Northumbrian hamper.
