To assist Redwings Horse Sanctuary by providing your time to take photographs at Redwings Visitor Centres to support the charity in achieving its purpose and mission.

Redwings prides itself on using its own photographs in all our publications, social media posts and on our retail products. However, with a growing number of visitor centres, adoption stars and activities, we are unable to capture all our key moments.

You will join us at our centres to take beautiful photographs of our residents and visitor activities, particularly on days when the centre is open to the public (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday 10am – 4pm) and on horse and donkey birthday parties which take place on occasional Sundays.

Below is a description of the type of tasks that you may undertake during your placement;


  • Following the guidelines provided, to take photographs as required at your specified Redwings Visitor Centre
  • Taking photographs of our adoption stars at their birthday parties 
  • Capturing images that we can use in our promotional material to showcase our visitor centre facilities and activities
  • Attending key events to take photos (e.g. cheque presentations, evening seminars)
  • Taking images that highlight the happiness of the horses in our care
  • To take any other photographs requested by the mentor,  Communications team or Fundraising team
  • To adhere to GDPR guidelines about seeking permission before photographing visitors (especially children) and where appropriate seeking confirmation that such images can be used through the use of the photo consent form provided

Volunteers are expected to provide their own photography equipment. Redwings will not be liable for any damage or loss to equipment.

Volunteers will provide Redwings with digital copies of photographs, and the charity will retain the right to use these images in its communications, fundraising, and trading activities without naming/ crediting the photographer. 

Volunteers must not use photographs taken at Redwings for their financial gain.

Volunteers must adhere to the health and safety guidelines issued during their induction and training and must wear any appropriate PPE or ID that is issued for their safety or identification.

All volunteers must be sympathetic to and able to project the philosophy and concept of equine welfare; supporting a charity, and Redwings values.

Redwings Horse Sanctuary is very much a community and all volunteers are encouraged to be part of its day to day life.

All volunteers must take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and others who may be affected by their actions.
