Get involved and volunteer

If you fancy rolling your sleeves up and getting yours hands mucky (mainly figuratively though occasionally it doesn't hurt to get some soil under the fingernails), then please read on!


We always welcome volunteers to help with our campaigning work. Could you help deliver our newsletters to your street or village, or go out with our campaign team and speak to local residents about their concerns?

We are particularly keen to find more volunteers with fundraising experience or press, research and administrative skills. We also run tree planting schemes and community litter picking in the autumn and spring.

Whatever your level of experience and however much or little time you can give, we would love to hear from you.

If you would like to get involved or just want more information, please fill out our short volunteering form below.

Alternatively, you can contact our District organiser John Matthissen or 01449 258894 for more information about ways you can get involved.

Stand for the council

The Green Party currently has 12 councillors at Mid Suffolk District Council, 3 at Suffolk County Council and a growing number of Town and Parish Councillors. We are aiming to increase this at the 2021 County and 2023 District Elections, so we need lots of enthusiastic, committed and hard-working candidates. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates.

Candidates should be paid-up members of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies.

For further details please contact John Matthissen on 01449 258 894.
