Volunteering at Hatchlands Park
Volunteering is a great way of making new friends and meeting new people. Whether that’s getting active and enjoying the great outdoors or spending some time in the historic 18th-century mansion, you can use and share the skills you already have or even learn some new ones with us.
A wide variety of roles
Whether you'd like to be front of house meeting our visitors or behind the scenes, there's a role to suit everyone. If you have a few spare hours a week you might enjoy working outdoors in the garden. If you have a keen eye for a good book, then volunteering in the second-hand bookshop may be the role for you.
We're particularly interested in hearing from people who want to share their passion with our visitors. Perhaps you're a keen gardener, flower arranger or crafter and would like to share your skills with us. We even have a specialist sewing team on site who help to create Georgian costumes for our younger visitors.
