Would you like to learn new skills, meet new people and help us to revive and look after Dyffryn Gardens? Why not consider joining us as a volunteer?

Thinking about volunteering?

Volunteers are the life blood of Dyffryn, without them we would not be able to keep the gardens so well maintained and to help less mobile visitors to enjoy them.

We'd love you to consider spending some of your free time with us so that we can continue to care for the house and gardens and to provide a great day out.
