Volunteers make a difference in Northern Ireland

Across all of our places in Northern Ireland, volunteers are integral to our work in caring for special places and opening them up for everyone to enjoy. Over 1,500 volunteers a year bring their time, skills, energy and passion to our places and they are highly valued members of our team.

Why volunteer with the National Trust?

Our volunteers tell us they get involved for so many different reasons including supporting a great cause, making new friends and sharing interests, developing new skills and spending time in places they love. 

" Our volunteers help us to bring nature, beauty and history to everyone. The positive impact they have is enormous and they are much valued team members, friends and supporters."

There are many ways to get involved, from getting your hands dirty in our gardens to sharing the stories behind our special places. Caring for collections, nuturing local nature and benefiting our biodiversity, volunteers make a vital contribution to our charitable work.
