At Dean Castle, you’ll be carrying out practical conservation work including footpath maintenance and invasive species management. This conservation work at Dean Castle Country Park and across their path network of East Ayrshire is helping improve access for outdoor activities for the community. Additionally, with East Ayrshire Leisure you’ll be volunteering at the Ayrshire Athletics Arena, helping run coaching sessions and summer boot camps. We will be doing sports volunteering with partner Scottish Sport Futures when the European Championships comes to Glasgow this August. You will be involved showcasing the incredible opportunities there are for people of all ages and abilities to get active or try a new sport. This will involve a variety of sporting events run at the iconic Glasgow Green!
The volunteers will be housed at a new residential centre in the country park just along the main drive for the castle. There will be four to a room in bunk beds. There is sufficient space that men and women can sleep in different rooms. There is a kitchen with cooking equipment available for the volunteers to use at the centre as well as a recreational space. There is no need to bring a sleeping bag.
