Woodland Trust branded uniform for volunteers
It has been the national policy for the last three years and remains so to offer every volunteer a polo shirt, but issue no other branded clothing. We will replace polo shirts if requested as they fade or get damaged. We do not supply fleeces, waterproofs or other branded clothing due to the cost involved. We absolutely value all our volunteers (just over 3000 of you!) and the added value they bring as much as we also value the kind donations of our members and supporters. While some specific funded projects have funded some branded clothing in recent years, this has only been done transparently with these funders and has usually been related to promoting the specific project.
We have been asked by a number of volunteers whether we can make these items available for sale and this is potentially an option we are exploring for the future. At this time though, we are not able to offer branded clothing for sale or site specific clothing.
The Woodland Trust supplies personal protective equipment for volunteers as identified on their role risk assessment. This can typically include items such as hard hats, gloves, safety googles, high-vis bibs and steel toe caps.
