Volunteer

We always have room for volunteers!

As a volunteer at the Forest Upcycling Project or Monmouthshire Upcycle your skills will be used fully giving you an excellent experience as well helping others – you will certainly develop other skills. Volunteering or working here can be uplifting and very rewarding. You’ll be in a friendly atmosphere, surrounded by individuals who care, whilst doing challenging things or basic tasks. We like to laugh whilst we work and share good will.

Our philosophy comes from David Brailsford (Team Sky Cycling Principal)

“.. if you broke down everything you could think of that goes into riding a bike, and then improved it by 1%, you will get a significant increase when you put them all together,” 

We believe the same about people and communities – you only need a number of small improvements to get a significant gain.

If you would like to get involved give us a call (01594 368240 – Forest, 01291 408300 – Chepstow), send us an email ( forestupcyclingproject@gmail.com , monmouthshireupcycle@gmail.com )  or pop in to have a chat.
