Can you help make an impact in your local area by helping others to take action? The Adopt A Spot Ambassador Scheme is recruiting 10 individuals who want to step-up to make a difference. We are looking for volunteers who are passionate about reducing their impact on the planet and are enthusiastic about encouraging others to make a difference too.
The scheme provides training and resources to give the confidence and skills to represent Live Here Love Here at events and to equip you lead your own events.
Interested? Contact us at email@example.com for more details and to organise a chat with the team. A volunteer application form and Access NI will need to be completed.
Is there an area near you that could use a bit of TLC? Could you commit to carrying out just four clean ups a year? Then get involved in our Adopt A Spot programme!
Adopt a Spot is a scheme that enables volunteers across Northern Ireland to adopt an area and look after it.
Adopters can be anyone, from families, community or youth groups, schools and sporting associations. Live Here Love Here will provide groups with an adoption pack containing all the equipment you need, including a hints and tips booklet on how to run a successful clean up.
The guys at Mid Ulster Walking Club take their litter pickers out with them on all of their walks across Northern Ireland - mostly the Mourne Mountains! Your spot can be as big or as small as you want it to be, it can even be the street you live on! It could be a mile of beach that always seems to be full of litter, an urban park, your local forest….anywhere is possible!
The Adopt A Spot programme is funded through DAERA.
