Welcome to volunteering

Volunteers are essential to every aspect of our work here… We have over 100 regular volunteers who generously and enthusiastically give their time to the cause. There are also those who volunteer occasionally, at events or as part of corporate groups. We value all our volunteers highly and welcome everyone aged 16 to 70+ who joins the Whirlow team.

We have a variety of volunteer opportunities across the organisation, from work on the land to that in the office. If you are interested in the countryside, want to use your skills in a beautiful setting, join a friendly team or gain work experience, we may have just the opportunity for you. Come along and enjoy the social side of supporting a charity too. We hold regular social and training evenings throughout the year.

Because not all opportunities are available all the time, it is best to contact us to check on the current situation. Please contact the Education Office on (0114) 2360096 or email: to ask about volunteering. We can arrange for you to visit the farm to discuss our volunteering opportunities.

Queen's award

Our volunteers received (October 2013) the Queen’s Award to mark their outstanding achievements.
