Volunteers play a huge role in caring for this special place. You can get up to all sorts when volunteering with us. It's not just outdoor either, as we have volunteers within the retail and catering teams too.

There are a wide range of volunteer roles within the Peak District, including gardeners, baking assistants, fungi monitors and photographers. You can view all of the current opportunities in the Peak District and at other local National Trust properties here.
