Get stuck in for Volunteers' Week
We’re lucky enough to have over 60,000 fantastic volunteers, who lend their time and provide vital support for the work we do. From costumed interpreters to wildlife surveyors and room guides to beekeepers, this Volunteers' Week (1 – 7 June) we’re celebrating every single person who help us to care for hundreds of special places all across the country.
If you’ve ever been tempted to try volunteering for yourself, then this week could also be the perfect opportunity for you to have a go. We’re offering several ‘taster days’ throughout the week, so you can help to improve habitat diversity with a bit of ‘bracken bashing’, enjoy the fresh sea air with your family on a beach clean, or help to conserve the Trust’s historic collections.
Whether it’s those woods you played in as a child, the coastline where you walk every weekend, or the sprawling parkland you explore with your kids, there’s always something you can do to help protect these places for the future. What’s more, you’ll have the opportunity to learn new skills, meet new friends, and enjoy some of the country’s most beautiful surroundings.
It’s the skills, time and passion of volunteers that make National Trust places special, and help to keep them open for ever, for everyone. Here are some of the top places to get stuck in:
