Volunteers in the current situation

Volunteers have always been at the heart of the work of the National Trust in caring for nature, beauty and history and we are really grateful for your interest in volunteering with us. The impact of the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) on the National Trust resulted in the closure of our places, and now our attention is turning to re-opening safely for staff, volunteers and visitors. 

When we're ready to involve new volunteers, we'll promote volunteering opportunities here on our website. Hopefully we'll have a volunteering role that will be just right for you.

How volunteers help us care for our collections 

With over one million collection items to look after at over 200 historic places, we have our work cut out. We wouldn’t be able to do it without our dedicated volunteers. We're highlighting our conservation volunteers and sharing their stories, favourite objects and conservation tips.

" Ten years later and I'm still excited to discover more stories about the house, and can't wait to share it with the next visitor I meet"
