Volunteering on Anglesey

If you’ve been thinking about volunteering or have been contemplating your resolution to do something different in 2021, why not consider volunteering with the National Trust at Plas Newydd House and Garden.

Get that feel-good factor

Some positive reasons to volunteer include: -

  • Volunteering has been linked with increased levels of happiness and decreased depression. 
  • People who volunteer report physical, mental, and emotional health benefits.
  • Volunteers help create and support healthy communities. Our volunteers have recently been helping at takeover days, where local schools have joined us as gardeners for the day.

From Mansion Interpreters to Red Squirrel Rangers

We have a diverse range of volunteer roles at Plas Newydd. Our Mansions Interpreters use their knowledge of the property and its collection to help people learn about Plas Newydd and gain a deeper understanding of our rich history and the characters that have shaped Plas Newydd over the centuries.

Our volunteer buggy drivers are the Formula 1 stars of the National Trust – but without the speed, or the fast cars – or the champagne! All joking aside, their role is essential to help visitors who may find it difficult to walk to and from the car park, or down to the house.

Volunteer visitor centre assistants and welcome assistants help to provide a warm welcome for everyone, helping to orientate visitors and generally provide any additional information at either the beginning or the end of the day.  They really are multi-tasking superstars who can brighten up even the rainiest day.

Did you know we also have Volunteer Red Squirrel Rangers here at Plas Newydd?  They lead daily walks through Dairy Wood, helping our visitors to learn more about the red squirrels who now call Plas Newydd home.
