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), or are not RTPI members, will be able to get involved in other activities depending on their interests and skills. More information about the kind of roles available.
*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 in the spring, please contact us by email quoting 'volunteer registration 2017' in the subject line.
