Volunteering with us

Volunteering with us can be a really rewarding experience and a great way to improve your skills and meet new people. We have lots of different things that you can get involved with.

Volunteering is a great way for you to help us look after the special places in our care, while making new friends in some of the countrie's most beautiful and interesting places.

We have a wide variety of opportunities available from growing plants at home to coppicing trees or helping in the lighthouse shop, or even being an underground tunnel guide at Fan Bay Deep Shelter.

What you can do

Fan Bay Deep Shelter instead of walking along the top you can start to take people inside the world famous White Cliffs of Dover by volunteering as a tour guide or greeter, you'll get to guide small groups of visitors around this forgotten underground world, while you bring it's story to life.

Or if you prefer to be in the sunshine you can enjoy one of  the most breath-taking views on offer at the top of the South Foreland Lighthouse by guiding visitors around this Victorian marvel. But don't worry if you dont have a head for heights you can always help out in Mrs Knotts tearoom and help us serve cakes and tea to our many visitors.

Caring for landscape is central to everything we do, our team of Volunteer Rangers help us care for the cliff top environment and repair our footpaths and fences. So if you like the great outdoors, come get muddy and help us care for the cliffs for years to come.

If gardening is more of your thing, why not become a Plant Fair volunteer and help us with our biggest event of the year? All the money raised from the plant fair is spent on conservation projects on the cliffs. Green fingers are not a necessity, just enthusiasm to grow plants, flowers or even vegetables.
