Volunteering opportunities in Brecon Beacons and Monmouthshire

Volunteers carrying out vital footpath repairs

Here are some of the ways you can get involved and volunteer with us. We want everyone who visit our landscapes to thoroughly enjoy their experience and our volunteers are a key part in making that happen.

Meet and Greet volunteers at Pont ar Daf

If you’re looking for a chance to meet new people, Meet and Greet volunteers do just that.

Situated at Pont ar Daf, the main access point onto the central Beacons, you’ll be providing a warm, sunny welcome even on the rainiest day.  As an ambassador for the National Trust your commitment to our cause and helping spread our conservation message with others is invaluable to us.

Using your wealth of knowledge and sharing your first-hand experiences of the area, you’ll be helping to enhance the visitor’s journey and you may be asked a question or two about local buses or attractions.

Lengths volunteers help us carry out upland path maintenance

Enjoy the outdoors? Then our Lengths volunteers love pitching in to do their bit.

Assist our ranger team for Brecon Beacons and Monmouthshire to carry out upland path maintenance on the Skirrid, Sugar Loaf and central Brecon Beacons.  Tasks include clearing drains, ditches and culverts and minor repair of structures such as pitching and wooden steps. 

Being a Lengths volunteer gives you the opportunity to share the National Trust’s aim to deliver vital conservation work at our sites, along with helping our visitors to enjoy and understand them.

How do I get involved?

Whether you can help for a fixed time such as holiday periods, or for regular days each week, we’d love to hear from you.  Some of our opportunities are seasonal so it's worth checking the National Trust volunteer website regularly for more information.

With a thorough induction and ongoing training, you’ll increase your own knowledge of our special places and being part of our Brecon Beacons and Monmouthshire team is a great way to learn new things.
