Open Country is a Harrogate-based charity that seeks to enable anyone with any disability to access the countryside, achieving this through a variety of countryside activities and the provision of information, training and advice.
Fully accessible transport is provided and staff are supported by teams of trained volunteers who are on hand to offer assistance as necessary.
They couldn’t exist without the help and support of volunteers and are always in need of new volunteers; jobs can range from guiding a visually impaired person, assisting a wheelchair user, driving a minibus, piloting a tandem, or mending their stock of equipment! Full training is given as required. Volunteers can come as often or as little as they wish and they guarantee that it is rewarding, exciting and fun!
If you would like further information on the volunteering opportunities available they would love to hear from you.
