This is a small charity based in the North East of Scotland. The Centre is situated next to Brucklay Castle and has approximately 25 acres of woodland and about 20 acres of pastureland. We have 14 horses, 26 dogs, 20 cats and 44 owls. So it is essential volunteers love animals and do not have allergies to animals. Experience with animals or working in woodland e.g chainsaw work, chopping wood etc.
We currently are looking for people with forestry skills for thinning our woodland, also people with joinery skills to help us to build new aviaries for the owls.

We require 3 or 4 volunteers to help us care for our animals some of which are used as therapy birds/animals for our work with the elderly and children and adults with special needs. We expect 25 hours work over 5 days in return for food and accommodation which is either in our yurt or in our 3 bed mobile home which also provides shower and toilet facilities and a small kitchen and living area.
We are based in a very tranquil and rural area the community bus will connect volunteers to public transport, many of our volunteers visit local attractions we are on both the castle trail and there are lots of small fishing villages all around our coastal area, it is about 9 miles to the sea and we have both sandy beaches and smaller rocky coves.

We ask people for a minimum stay of 1 month and a maximum stay of 4 months. If you are interested please get in touch and let us know your experience with animals and something about yourselves, we look forward to hearing from you.
We currently have vacancies from 8th August.
