Experience the fresh air, hidden depths, and new views of the National Trust while helping to conserve our heritage for ever,for everyone, by joining a local National Trust supporter group. You can meet like-minded people, enjoy lots of different social activities and get active with hands-on volunteering. As a member of a group, you’ll be helping us to share our special places. Supporter groups play a vital role in bringing our places to life and opening them up for everyone to enjoy.

Become a 'Friend' of a property - imagine getting to see what really goes on behind-the-scenes at your favourite National Trust place – understanding the history and the stories that make it what it is – not to mention ensuring its healthy future. As a part of a property group, you’ll have a unique relationship with the place which is most special to you. You can get involved with their volunteering team, learn about conservation, organise events and fundraising and work on ideas for the future. It’s very sociable and incredibly rewarding.

Join an Association - getting together with other National Trust members and volunteer card holders who feel passionate about the same things is priceless. Sharing unique experiences and finding out more about the places you care about is what being part of a local National Trust association is all about. From listening to expert talks and going on behind-the-scenes tours to taking relaxing holidays, you’ll be part of something amazing. Our associations promote our work within their local area and raise money for conservation and development projects through all kinds of events.

Be part of a National Trust Volunteer Group - if you can see yourself in the great outdoors (or sometimes the great indoors), building, creating and conserving – this could just be the perfect choice for you. As part of a group, you’ll help conserve our special places – both locally and further afield. You might be constructing a footpath, building a fence or helping to restore natural habitats on the coast, but whatever you’re doing, you’ll be in the company of a great bunch of people.
