Volunteer with us

Our volunteers are quite simply the lifeblood of our special place. Without them, we couldn't fulfil our conservation work and visitors would miss their valuable contribution in bringing our place to life. If you're interested in joining our great network of volunteers, we have a variety of different opportunities for you to get involved.

Why join us?

There are lots of reasons to join us; making the move to volunteer could be the best decision you ever make.

  • Become part of a friendly and dedicated team
  • Meet people from all walks of life and forge new friendships
  • Utilise your existing skills and learn new ones
  • Strengthen your CV and help to develop your career
  • Enjoy the great outdoors
  • Learn about the history of this special place.

There are a number of opportunities available at Sheringham Park and nearby Felbrigg Hall, with new roles being recruited for on a regular basis. Do you have green fingers? You could join the gardening or estate team. Love meeting new people? Come and help with our programme of events.

The Bower Garden at Sheringham Park features a sensory garden, a wildflower meadow and a pond, created as a space for adults and children to explore, discover and have fun. Rosemary is one of a dedicated team of volunteers who help maintain it. She loves that it keeps her active with no gym fees to pay, and that the small group enjoys lots of autonomy, friendship and laughter.
