Volunteering

Help up us keep the Caves thriving! Join our friendly team, learn new skills or put yours to good use.

There are a variety of opportunities that can fit every timescale and skill set. We provide training where needed and all volunteers receive an induction.

We are looking for volunteers interested in undertaking a variety of roles including: admitting visitors in the Centre; guiding visitors through the Caves; working in the shop; assisting in the busy Café; administration for the community rooms; gardening and maintenance; or maybe you have other skills you can offer!

In return we can offer you training, the opportunity to develop your skills and gain experience volunteering at a heritage site, a chance to meet new people and to be part of an exciting and interesting project that benefits our local community.

We are a small friendly team and if you feel you can help us do a good job we would love to hear from you.
