The Council helps look after our inspiring places for future generations. Its members advise on important decisions, inform strategy and keep us connected to the wider public.
What does the Council do?
Council members serve an initial term of three years, and are then eligible to restand. Elections take place every year.
How can I join?
Inspiring places need inspiring people. If you’re energetic, enthusiastic, and determined to make a difference, the Council could be for you. This is a great volunteering opportunity to pursue your passion for the National Trust and have your say.
We invite applications to join our Council every year – the next opportunities will be advertised in March 2020. In the meantime, if you’d like to find out more please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Council is the guardian spirit of the National Trust. It is not our governing body, but its responsibilities include appointing our Board of Trustees and monitoring their work and performance.
