Volunteering opportunities

Become part of Westonbirt's vibrant community of volunteers, helping to protect and enhance our landscape and welcome visitors to The National Arboretum.

Apply for our current volunteering opportunities below:

Volunteer Driver

We're looking for enthusiastic and friendly volunteers to help us trial an onsite transport service that we will be running in the autumn and winter months. Volunteers will drive with visitors along pre-determined routes, helping less mobile visitors to have better access to the arboretum and its central facilities.

Please note: The trial period for this scheme will run throughout autumn/winter and the first two volunteer driver training days scheduled are now full.  However we are hoping the trial will be successful and that we will run the shuttle service on a regular basis.  If you could be interested in getting involved, please still send us your details so that we can keep you updated on progress and hopefully future training dates
