Volunteering at Stowe
As a charity here to protect our special places for everyone to enjoy, we simply couldn’t do it without the aid of thousands of volunteers. From keeping our properties alive with intriguing stories to being at the forefront of conservation, volunteers are the heartbeat of the National Trust.
Lending a hand
If you’ve got some spare time to lend a hand and would like to learn something new or share in a passion you have, then we’d love to hear from you. There’s a variety of positions available for volunteers, or tell us what interests you most.
" At the Stowe and Aylesbury Portfolio in 2017, 401 volunteers worked in 49 roles, donating 35,000 hours. We simply couldn't achieve what we do without their contribution. Join the team and help us look after your local special place."

Chat makes the world a better place
We’re also on the lookout for people who love to chat! We love welcoming our visitors and need help in our passionate team who ensure people get the best visitor experience when they arrive at the New Inn visitor centre.
Flying the flag for our charity
Within the visitor centre we love to tell the story of Stowe and engage our supporters in our restoration and community work. Become a Fundraising Volunteer to help us raise income by selling raffle tickets and championing our cause or if you're used to being out in the community at various groups you may like the sound of our Community Link role.
Acting as a brand ambassador, you'll be helping to welcome local visitors to Stowe for tea parties as part of the parliament EqualiTeas initiative, going out to visit local groups and supporting our colleagues at events in local town centres to spread the message of our work. If this sounds like the role for you, we'd love to hear from you.
Corporate volunteering also brings benefits to your company from developing social responsibility within the community to providing activities that give employee welfare, development and team building opportunities. We do not charge for this and ask only for you to cover travel expenses and the cost of additional equipment tools via a donation.
