Natural Resources Wales (NRW) has teamed up with Coventry University to encourage people out into the beautiful Welsh countryside and to find out what stops them from going.  Some of the feedback we’ve had is that people are worried about livestock in open spaces.  What to do if you see a herd of cows, for instance?  What to do if you are walking your dog?  Hence we’ve asked PONT (Pori Natur A Threftadaeth) to deliver some training for us that addresses some of these issues.  First they will explain why animals in our landscapes are so important for biodiversity and then they’ll explain what to do if you see some.

This free 2 hour online training course is designed to help you feel comfortable in the countryside and to advise others you might also see this as a challenges.

The first session is Friday 15th December at 10am via Teams.

The second session is Saturday 16th December at 10am via Zoom.

Here’s the link to sign up for either.  https://coventry.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/people-in-the-landscape-training

The new and improved Volunteering Wales website is a simple, effective and completely free way for organisations to recruit and manage volunteers.

It’s free to use, and over a thousand organisations have already taken advantage to start advertising their volunteering opportunities to the Welsh public.

Wales has a rich history of volunteering, in all the different forms it takes, and now it couldn’t be easier for people to help out in their local communities. Organisations are advertising all sorts of volunteer opportunities all across the country, from working in charity shops, to befriending services, helping organise charity runs and events and more.

Whether you’re an organisation looking for new volunteers, or someone who wants to give back to their community, Volunteering Wales can help you find what you need.

Volunteers are the backbone of the voluntary sector, and at a time when many are pushed for time and money, Volunteering Wales aims to make the process as simple and straightforward as possible so you can find and manage your volunteers with the minimum amount of fuss.

Managed by TSSW (Third Sector Support Wales), Volunteering Wales links volunteers with the voluntary organisations that need them, and it couldn’t be simpler to take advantage of it.

Please take time to register your organisation, if you have any questions then please contact frances.barry@vamt.net
