Treasurer’s House team of volunteers work together to ensure that visitors have the best experience possible. If you want to make new friends, develop new skills or just support the charity – we will provide everything you need to get stuck in.

Just so you know...

We're working hard to re-open many of our places where it is safe to do so. At the moment Treasurer's House remains closed. Goddards garden is open on selected days as are the outdoor spaces at Beningbrough. Visit the property websites to see exactly what to expect and how to book your tickets.

Please note we are not currently recruiting for new volunteers due to the evolving guidelines from the government, these details will be updated when the situation changes.
