I volunteer to help to make a difference and to make new friends. There’s plenty of variety of jobs and you can acquire new skills.

Dig in and muck out at Sacrewell as part of our team of volunteers. As a charitable trust, we rely heavily on volunteers to keep the site and the animals looking their best all year round and provide our visitors with a memorable experience. Whether you’re a gardener looking for a new project, a handyman with time on your hands or a budding historian with a thirst for living history, there may be the perfect voluntary role to suit you.
In the past, we’ve had volunteers aged from 8 to 80, so if you have a skill or some time that you’d like to contribute, please do send an email to us with “Volunteering” in the subject line.
Sacrewell is proud to work with a number of special needs schools and organisations as a community outreach centre. We also welcome corporate volunteer groups and youth groups, who have assisted in conservation tasks such as planting trees, building fences and creating a new willow coppice. If you lead a group who would like to donate their time, get in touch with “Group Volunteering” in the subject line.
Farm based educators
With a practical hands-on-approach the Farm-based Educator will work as part of a team with a range of day-to-day practical tasks which are essential for the smooth operation of the Farm Centre. The postholder will assist in the effective care and management of a variety of livestock, and ensure all visitors experience a great day out at Sacrewell. Site presentation and hygiene are also key aspects of this role, so you’ll need to be happy helping keep every part of the farm clean.
