Sustrans Dundee and Angus Volunteer Ranger
When We Need You
From 23/05/2013 onwards
The Dundee and Angus group covers the National Cycle Network (NCN) route 1 which goes through Dundee and on to Aberdeen and beyond via the coast. The group is keen to involve new Volunteers.
Volunteer Rangers assist with essential maintenance on the NCN, which helps to keep the routes clear for path users to enjoy. All necessary tools are provided. You will become the eyes and ears for Sustrns and our many partners. We will rely on you to deal with minor problems yourself and report major problems such as potholes and hazards, to the right place so they get dealt with rapidly.
There are links with the Access Officer of Dundee City Council to address active travel within the city.
There are other potential roles for Volunteer Rangers such as encouraging local biodiversity, leading rides or walks, involving your workplace, fundraising, organising events, Active travel champion and promoting Sustrans
About Sustrans Scotland
Sustrans makes smarter travel choices possible, desirable and inevitable. We're a leading UK charity enabling people to travel by foot, bike or public transport for more of the journeys we make every day. Much of this is via the National Cycle Network (NCN), which covers over 2,000 miles in Scotland, 1500 miles on road and over 500 miles off road, and much more across the UK as a whole.
Across the UK, the NCN carries over a million walking and cycling journeys daily in the UK and passes within a mile of 57% of the population.
We work with families, communities, policy-makers and partner organisations so that people are able to choose healthier, cleaner and cheaper journeys, with better places and spaces to move through and live in. It's time we all began making smarter travel choices. Make your move and support Sustrans today.
