I'm Sheila and I'm looking for help to look after my dogs and to help to bring my allotment back into productive use. It would be from now until early April, but happy to welcome volunteers for shorter periods too.

I have 3 dogs, although one is a foster and is looking for a home. I walk them every day on the beach but they all need more attention than I can give them at the moment, due to work. If you have dog-training skills, that would be fabulous!

The allotment is very close to the house, and has several perennial plants, but it is a bit overgrown. I'd like to clear it and fill mostly with perennials, with some small spaces for annuals.

Accommodation is in one double bedroom. The house is a little chilly at times, but otherwise comfortable. A hand keeping the fire going is always welcome! There is internet available for volunteers and mobile signal in the house and village. The food is vegan. I'd prefer one person but could consider 2. I would prefer a non smoker.

Accommodation and English language training if required in our lowly but characterful three hundred year old fen edge cottage. Its scruffy and often a bit dirty as I'm decluttering days. But spring is on its way and its beautiful if you like animals and countryside and medieval cities and scruffy old cottages.

Its exactly halfway along the road from Cambridge to Newmarket. 7 miles from each centre. That takes about 15 mins in flowing traffic and considerably more in rush hour.

There is a bus into town(s) from the corner and there is also the park and ride service which is cheaper and quicker than the regular bus which is nearby so we can always run you to or from there in our car.

We are a couple in our mid sixties. I'm a semi-retired freelance English language teacher, teacher trainer and ex-author of resource books for teachers. I'm thinking of moving to Spain with the horses and Liam.

Liam was a contract manager in construction and is now retired. He is Irish and is ... more inside

A 200 year old cotswold stone house located in a small village near Stroud. It has a good size garden on a slope with woodland above and is located in a conservation area within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty backing on to the Toadsmoor valley. The house is 25 mins walk from Stroud town centre and has recently undergone major refurbishment which is still ongoing. There are a few shops in the village as well as a pub nearby. The house is surrounded with the hills and countryside on your doorstep...great for forest walks and there are lovely lakes to swim in nearby.. English, Spanish and French is spoken. Helpers stay in the house in their own room and share facilities like kitchen and bathroom with others. We aim to work an average of 5 hours per day, 4 days p/week. I have a 9 month old baby daughter who's very easy going and cute. The work is varied but currently there are raised beds to make for growing vegetables, a chicken run to make, chickens to feed and care for, ... more inside

**We have space from 19th March for helpers who would like to stay for about two weeks.**

We keep poultry and rabbits and have a vegetable garden at our house in a small village on the Quantock Hills. We are also involved with our family horticultural nursery and smallholding two miles away, where our family also has beehives. We sell eggs and breed and sell hens and rabbits. We run courses in poultry-keeping from beginners to advanced levels (that helpers are welcome to participate in). We have an interest in sustainable/local food production and are starting to experiment with perennial vegetables and how chickens can be integrated in to a system. We kill and prepare our own chicken for the table.

We are looking for help for about 28 hours a week, spread to be mutually convenient.

After being shown how and becoming confident we like helpers to take responsibility for feeding and watering the rabbits and chickens in the morning, most mornings. This usually takes about an h... more inside

Hi, Iím Fred. Iím 38 years old and Iíve been studying several foreign languages for a few years. I have low intermediate Spanish, French and Italian, and lower Russian.

Iíll happily host native speakers of these languages for 1-4 weeks at a time, in exchange for a few hours language practice per day. I can only host 1 person at any time.

I'm looking for easy-going, sociable, happy and open people who want to experience cultural Liverpool and who will want to get to know whoever is living in the house at the time.

You must be a native speaker of Russian, Spanish, French or Italian. If you're a speaker of Russian, you'll need to have a high level of English. If you're a speaker of Spanish, French or Italian, it's not so important.

Helpers will be required to help me with learning their mother tongue, but you will have plenty of free time. Language practice will be for approximately 2-3 hours each day. Even when we're not practising, I would prefer to communicate in your ... more inside

A bustling place with lots going on! Two to four of us live here, and there are volunteers who live locally. We run a residential centre for courses and learning holidays, there's a weekly community cafe, and a Yoga studio. We have 3 acres of garden, outbuildings and paddocks. Hens, ducks, Kune kune pigs, and a few sheep. Vegetables grown on raised beds and in a polytunnel. Would appreciate volunteers with building maintenance skills to help mend leaky roofs, make gates etc! Work is in the vegetable garden, early morning animal feeding, and mucking out. We often need help baking for our cafe. Help is also with general catering, cleaning, and other domestic duties. Always lots of washing up.

We can take helpers for short or long visits (if they are the right person/people!) We also have working weekends about once a month. We invite potential volunteers to look at our website before applying, and tell us why they have chosen us in particular.

You'll be made very welcome. BUT RIGHT NOW we can't take visitors
This is a Cotswold house with a large garden ...I need help to get the house and garden ready for visitors and also while we have people staying.
You'd have your own comfortable room and be expected to work with me and unsupervised on everything from gardening, cleaning, DIY and decorating - maybe even teaching and art work if you like that kind of thing? We'll be around so you can ask questions if you need help with stuff. It's a lovely part of the world.
