Volunteering at Stowe

Two ladies sit on a golf buggy, with bunting. They hold a small chalkboard which reflects on what makes Stowe special to them.

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.

Role of the month - App testing team

Whilst you'll find lots of volunteering opportunities to choose from, we've chosen this new and latest role to highlight. We need your help to test our exciting new app at Stowe. If you fancy a walk through the Grecian Valley with the chance to learn about its history and take part in some interactive games, all you need is a smartphone and an open mind. A free, fun activity to enjoy with friends or family. The activity is running until 20 August, running daily from 10am to 5pm. To register, please sign up here or email us.

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.

From helping us bake in the kitchen to welcoming families to our events and activities, there's lots of different roles to suit you at Stowe. Say "Yes" to getting involved and see our full vacancy list.

" At the Stowe and Aylesbury Portfolio during the 2018/19 season, volunteers worked in 66 roles, donating 54,456 hours. These were given by hundreds of people – our volunteers, corporate groups, schools and members of the community. We simply couldn't achieve what we do without their contribution. Join the team and help us look after your local special place."

Team building days 

If you have a workforce of employees and wish to support a charity, Stowe is a great place to choose. We have a dedicated programme of activities for groups to participate in, whilst helping our gardening team achieve projects with mass help. What will take our small team of gardeners months to complete, will in comparison take one day for a group of 20 or more volunteers to achieve.
