Everyone is welcome
Our diverse volunteering team comprises of people from all walks of life, many of whom are active retired people who aren't ready to put their feet up yet.
Families can also volunteer as a way to spend quality time together working on a joint cause. Volunteering as a student is also a very popular way to gain valuable experience before moving on to employment within the National Trust or elsewhere.
Enjoy the perks
For regular volunteers, we offer free entry to all National Trust properties, discounts in our shops and tea-rooms. There are also behind the scenes visits to local museums and heritage sites, social events and other visits throughout the year.
We send out a monthly newsletter to keep you updated on what's happening across the estate. You'll also sign up to the Trust's volunteering website which gives you access to advice and information to help you get the most out of your volunteering experience.
