The Green Days project is run by Innovate Trust and funded by the Big Lottery Fund Wales; it is a community project which enables people with disabilities to gain skills and experience by contributing to their own communities through conservation and green volunteering.

Activities take place in the Cardiff, Vale and RCT areas, and can range from litter picking to clearing invasive species such as Himalayan Balsam and Japanese Knotweed and keeping footpaths in good condition.

Surveys that are filled in whilst on activities and nature walks also help to monitor biodiversity.

As a volunteers, you will support people with learning disabilities in their activities in ways such as:

  • Use of equipment
  • Supervision and one to one mentoring
  • Working in teams and developing friendships
  • Explaining instructions
