Our volunteers have been at the heart of everything we do for more than four decades. We try to provide a wide range of opportunities to get involved in order to provide world-class planning advice and support for communities and individuals.
What can I do as a volunteer?
In order to meet the diverse needs of individuals and communities we need a range of volunteers with different skill sets, interests and expertise. We offer a number of opportunities for volunteers to help us and these include:
- promoting PAE and the services and support we offer within your own organisation and/or local area
- as a casework volunteer, supporting eligible individuals or groups with planning related matters
- reviewing guidance and publications
- assisting with community consultation and engagement
Do I need to be MRTPI?
You don't need to be MRTPI to volunteer with Planning Aid England, but only Chartered Member volunteers can give planning advice. Volunteers who are at a different stage of RTPI membership (e.g. Licentiate, Retired), will be able to get involved in other activities depending on their interests and skills.
*PLEASE NOTE* Volunteer registration is currently suspended whilst we undertake our biennial volunteer review. If you would like us to notify you when volunteer registration re-opens, please contact us by email quoting 'volunteer registration 2017' in the subject line.
