We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

RSPB Pin Badge Box Volunteers

  • VO72721


An RSPB pin badge volunteer plays a vital role in raising funds within their local community, helping to give nature a home across the country. The role involves looking after an existing pin badge box site, or placing new ones, topping it up with badges, collecting and banking funds, as well as recording monies online and ordering replacement stock.
For just a couple of hours each month, a little time makes a huge difference to the RSPB’s work.
The role is flexible to suit the volunteer’s existing commitments and full training and support will be provided. Travel expenses can be reclaimed to ensure the volunteer is not out-of-pocket.
It is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to boost their skills and make a difference through volunteering, helping to save Scotland’s wildlife and habitats.

Organisation aims and objectives

Our work is driven by a passionate belief that we all have a responsibility to protect birds and the environment. Bird populations reflect the health of the planet on which our future depends. The need for an effective bird conservation organisation has never been greater. Climate change, agricultural intensification, expansion of urban areas and transport infrastructure, and over-exploitation of our seas all pose major threats to birds. The RSPB could not exist without its supporters and members. Whether you join us, give a donation, purchase items from us or undertake voluntary work, your support is vital to the future of birds and the places where they live.
