Businesses like yours help keep the Royal Parks beautiful and bursting with life every day. Last year 330 amazing corporate volunteers from six companies spent 20 days helping out in the parks.
They managed meadows in Kensington Gardens, planted bulbs in Hyde Park and repaired benches in Greenwich Park – to name a few!
Why we need your help
It costs £36m a year to run the eight Royal Parks, so that they can remain open for our 77 million visits each year. With limited funds we rely on the valuable time and energy devoted by teams of volunteers to make improvements to the parks possible that otherwise could not happen!
Opportunities in the Royal Parks
Your company can support its very own area of the Royal Parks year-round with one of our Conservation Zones. Our unique corporate volunteering programme provides your company with the opportunity to sponsor your own area of the Royal Parks, and to get your team out of the office and into the fresh air on a series of Park Days.
Through volunteering in your own zone over a year, your team will feel an extra sense of pride and commitment for the work they undertake and its positive impact now and in the future. By becoming a zone partner, you'll join an oustanding group of corporates dedicated to improving parks, including BNP Paribas, Bloomberg and Benugo.
Find out more on our Conservation Zones page.
We offer a wide range of corporate volunteering activities on our one-off Park Days, ideal if your company is unable to commit to supporting a Conservation Zone for a full year.
We can host groups of between 8 – 40 individuals, for either half a day or a full day, and no prior experience is needed to participate.
