Are you passionate about cycling? Do you have an interest in bike maintenance? Volunteer with I Bike!
I Bike is a really fun and rewarding project to volunteer with that offers plenty of opportunities to get outdoors for cycling-related activities, boost the CV, gain experience of work with children and young people, meet new people and learn new skills.
In Aberdeen, we're particularly looking for people who are interested in bike maintenance. Maybe you want to improve your existing skills, get some practice alongside others or put your expertise to good use! Training and support is provided for all levels.
I Bike is a schools programme which aims to help children and young people become more active through taking part in cycling and walking activities. You would be volunteering alongside a dedicated I Bike Officer in schools. Our maintenance sessions are called Dr Bike where we set up a workshop in the school grounds to fix children's bikes. But there are plenty of other activities we run for children such as learn to cycle, playground cycle skills, led bike rides, led walks and much more!

Bonnie Dundee is looking for volunteers to help make Dundee a greener, cleaner and brighter place for everyone. All are welcome to come and help us with our gardening activities and other tasks.
Our volunteers and are involved in a wide range of projects and activities each year. Including tending to over 50 planters, an urban orchard and two gardens in the city centre, plus carrying out litter picks and helping to encourage biodiversity. Those involved aim to improve Dundee’s environment for both residents and visitors alike, providing opportunities for people to get involved and make a difference in their community.
Bonnie Dundee has a great sense of community and enthusiasm, welcoming all volunteers regardless of age, experience or ability. Please do come and join us if you’d like to learn more, have fun and help make Dundee cleaner and brighter for everyone.
Volunteers can be involved with gardening tasks, designing new areas of garden development, planning and running events. We are always keen to build on volunteer’s interests, skills and experience and therefore encourage suggestions and ideas and volunteers from all walks of life.
It is not expected new volunteers to be an expert, or even to have any previous gardening experience. We welcome an array of skills.
Our planet is changing. The climate and biodiversity are in crisis. We can turn the tide, but to do so, we need to keep an eye on wildlife and the natural habitats that support them.
We’re looking for volunteers to join a citizen science project recording wild mammals in the green spaces of our towns and cities. Whether a grey squirrel or fox, or red fox, bats or deer, every sighting is important and goes to build a bigger picture of how wildlife is faring.
The online Living with Mammals survey has information to recognise the species on our doorsteps and is part of an active conservation effort. Other surveys too require your help, whether you live in the heart of the city or more rural areas.
Living with Mammals takes place throughout the year and more details can be found at https://ptes.org/get-involved/surveys/
