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. We are currently reviewing where support is most needed and we will be recruiting for a number of specific volunteer positions shortly. Please check this space for further details in the coming weeks.

Group Volunteering

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.

Corporate Volunteering and Team Building

Would you like to spend a day with your colleagues out of the office, getting your hands dirty? Corporate team-building days at Sacrewell are a hands-on and active experience. Projects can vary from clearing woodland, improving wildlife areas, preparing a nature space for schools or digging out a mill stream! These tasks provide a great opportunity for work colleagues to come together as a team and create a practical project in beautiful surroundings while making a positive impact on a charity and community hub.

Make our events even more special for our visitors by providing a personal touch. Assist with delivering events such as outdoor theatre, Christmas and sheep shearing.
