Volunteer at Gibside 

We're bringing this vast estate back to life. With the help of volunteers we're able to get a little further each week. But this is about you! If you're interested in volunteering, tell us what you enjoy doing and we'll see how we can help. There's gardening roles, visitor facing ones in the cafe and shop and many more on offer.
