Volunteer for the National Party

Voluntary help is needed at all levels of the party, but especially in our regional and local parties. People volunteer with the party for all types of reasons - they may want to update their skills, be active, or improve their job prospects.  There is no typical volunteer but it helps if you have a passion for Green politics, share our core values and can work effectively as part of a team.

We rely on our members to shape our policies, fight our campaigns and help to run and win elections where we can make a difference for the common good.

"As a volunteer, you can make new friends and meet like minded people. You will develop new skills and gain valuable work experience." - Sophie, London

"It's interesting to see the internal clock-work of a political/campaigning organisation and to have satisfaction that I'm part of that machine furthering the Green cause." - David, Kent

However, you don’t need to be a member of the Green Party to help out and even if you can only give a few hours every so often or can commit some time every week we would like to hear from you.
