Hen Harrier Action is the charity that supports Hen Harrier Days – events that celebrate and publicise the uplands and their associated wildlife so that they can continue to exist, free of persecution, for everyone to enjoy.


Our main role is to provide advice, encouragement and support, materials and expertise, publicity via social media and our website, and other help to people who wish to organise a Hen Harrier Day event or other related event – such as a guided walk or an information stand at a local market. For us to support the people who wish to run these events, we also need help from volunteers who might have expertise in communications, marketing, events management, design, etc., to offer.


Additionally, we need to reach new audiences, and increase public awareness and engagement to spread the word about hen harriers and Hen Harrier Days, for that we need volunteers with a variety of skills to help us. Perhaps you are involved in a certain community via a hobby such as rambling or singing, for example, and feel that you could engage that community with our assistance. Or perhaps you have good technical skills and could support Hen Harrier Action ‘behind the scenes’. Whatever skills you have, if you would like to volunteer, we would like to hear from you.

Why volunteer for HHA?

Becoming a volunteer is very rewarding: it’s a chance to meet new people, share your skills and make a positive difference to the environment. Millions of people volunteer their time and skills to charities in the UK, for several different reasons. Many want to ‘give something back’, but especially in the environmental sector there is a sense that we can all do something to look after our planet. Volunteering also broadens experience in a valuable if sometimes intangible way, which is why it can suit so many different people.

If you volunteer with HHA, you will be working with a group of people who are committed to the cause of ending the persecution of raptors and other animals, ending the mismanagement of the uplands, and widening access to these areas. The amount of time we are each able to give may vary but we all support each other, and will support you too should you want to join us. Our volunteers are extremely important to us and we will endeavour to ensure that we utilise your skills in the best way possible.
