National Trust Voluntary Work

Ever thought about volunteering? In 1895 three people did just that, and founded The National Trust.

If you’ve ever thought about volunteering, you can now offer your time to National Trust – Europe’s most successful conservation movement.

The National Trust still relies heavily on its volunteers, and last year the National Trust were helped by 55,000 volunteers.

If you’re looking for an exciting and interesting way to make a difference in conserving the environment and the UK’s heritage, then no matter what your interests or skills, the National Trust would love to hear from you.

Volunteering for the National Trust will help you learn new skills, meet new people and work right at the heart of amazing buildings, gardens and landscapes.

  • My aunt used to be a volunteer for the National Trust at Oxburgh Hall.

    Oxburgh Hall is an magnificent moated house with a great Tudor gatehouse, built in 1482 for the Bedingfeld family. Portraits of the Bedingfeld family are found throughout the house.

    Although there has been some alterations and restoration over the centuries, the original outline of the house remains.

    The house has superb 17th century wall-coverings on the stairs and corridor. The Great Tower is completely unchanged and rises impressively to 80 feet above the moat. On the first floor of the tower is the King’s Chamber where Henry VII stayed on a visit to Oxburgh in 1487. This room displays panels of needlework embroidered by Mary, Queen of Scots during her captivity. These were brought to the house in 1793 by the daughter of Viscount Montague of Cowdray, who married a Bedingfeld. There is also work by Elizabeth, Countess of Shrewsbury. Its well worth a visit if you ever come to Norfolk or if you live nearby well worth being a volunteer for the National Trust.
