Volunteering with the National Trust

Volunteers clearing scrubland

Thanks to the skills, time and passion that over 250 volunteers give, we can look after Gibside forever, for everyone.

Whatever your motivation, you can become part of a great team, make new friends, gain extra knowledge from the existing team and be involved in caring for this 18th century estate. Plus, your travel expenses are covered and there's other benefits too.

So what roles are available...

" My experiences as a volunteer at Gibside have been overwhelmingly positive. It has added another gratifying dimension to an already busy life."
- Angus Bryne, Tour guide volunteer
" Since I have been involved with Gibside, there have been many changes to the estate and I have enjoyed seeing it evolve. There are many more changes to come, so I don’t think I will be giving up volunteering here anytime soon!"
- Anthea Lang, Chapel conservation volunteer
