Volunteering with Stripey Stork

Stripey Stork is powered by dedicated and passionate volunteers and we are always looking for enthusiastic people to join our team.

If you live in Surrey and would like to volunteer with us, either on a regular or ad-hoc basis, as an individual, with a group of friends or as part of a community group, then we’d love to hear from you. Our HQ is conveniently located near Reigate town centre and we have parking available.

You’ll be able to make a real difference and contribute to an organisation with ambitious plans. You’ll have the opportunity to use your existing skills and learn new ones. Training and support will be provided.

Case Study: From Storklet to Stork in a Day

Did you know a female baby stork is also known as a storklet? Well, today I spread my wings and grew into a fully-fledged stork.
