Volunteering at Anglesey Abbey

Our volunteers come from all sorts of backgrounds with all kinds of interests and experience, and they all help us look after our special places. Whatever you'd like to achieve, and however much time you would like to spend with us - by yourself, or with your family or as a group, we'd love to hear from you.

Why volunteer?

There are many reasons why volunteering is a fantastic opportunity. Besides making new friends, learning new skills and feeling like you're contributing to something worthwhile, volunteering offers the chance to play your part in caring for the nations heritage.

As the largest conservation charity in the UK, the National Trust cares for gardens, parkland, houses and other historic buildings, aswell as the collections contained within their walls. 

Here at Anglesey Abbey, we have a varied range of volunteer roles available. Joining a team of over 300, you could either be helping us care for the collection to protect it for future generations, or directly engaging with our visitors, ensuring they have a memorable day with us. 

So whether you're a history enthusiast, book lover, cake baker, or you're simply looking to try something new, we'd absolutely love to hear from you. 

" Here at Anglesey Abbey there's a role for everybody. We pride ourselves in the range of roles available to volunteers and it’s a great way to get involved with something new, whilst make new friends at the same time."
- Jack Watson - Volunteering and Community Involvement Officer, Anglesey Abbey

How often would I volunteer?

We have a few different types of roles here at Anglesey Abbey, depending on the commitment you'd like to make, and what suits your lifestyle the most. 

Long term volunteering

Many of our volunteers come back again and again to roles that they love – our Historical Engagers, Visitor Welcome volunteers and Garden volunteers often volunteer weekly or fortnightly for the 362 days a year that we're open for. 

Short term volunteering

We often have temporary volunteering roles that are vital to support some of our events, including our family events throughout the school holidays. We're always looking for volunteers to support us with our Easter trail, or at Anglesey Abbey Winter Lights. If you think this could be for you, then please get in touch.
