This report explores the role and scope of volunteering in relation to the Natural Connections Demonstration Project.

The Demonstration Project aims to reconnect children with their local natural environments by stimulating both the demand for and the supply of services to support learning outside the classroom in local natural environments (LOTCNE).

The Project will test, over 3 full school years (2012-2015), the effectiveness of a new delivery model in achieving this aim, with a focus on working with schools in areas of multiple deprivation that are currently providing little or no learning outside the classroom in natural environments.

One of the four required elements of the Demonstration Project is to test the role that volunteers can play in the menu of support services made available to schools in the delivery of local LOTCNE.
