The John Clare Trust Volunteer Programme

If you have some spare time and enjoy meeting people of all ages - why not join the John Clare Trust as a Volunteer. As a volunteer you can help the John Clare Trust to inspire present and future generations to understand and enjoy our natural and historic environment through conservation, learning and customer care.

Volunteer Opportunities

We encourage people of all ages, experiences and backgrounds to apply for our volunteer program. If you think you have something to contribute, even if it is a few hours a month,  to the work of The John Clare Trust, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Volunteer experience

Volunteers work alongside our small and dedicated team of staff at the John Clare Cottage located in Helpston near Peterborough. We introduce Volunteers to all aspects of our work and ensure that the input they make during their time with us forms a relevant and valuable contribution to our ongoing projects.

Volunteer support

David Dykes is the volunteer coordinator in charge of overseeing all volunteer matters at The John Clare Trust, including Volunteers' pastoral care whilst working with us.
