Information for Volunteers


Volunteer Roles

There are lots of different ways in which you can get involved as a volunteer.  Whether it's helping out in the gardens, bringing the history of The Bishop's Palace and Gardens alive, welcoming visitors, or providing valuable admin support, there is a range of roles available. If you fancy doing something different or know someone keen to volunteer here, take a look at the different roles and see what might inspire you or them. In addition, ad hoc volunteering opportunities arise throughout the year, such as helping out at events, and we'll keep you informed about these. And of course, one of the best ways to find out about a role is to talk to a volunteer who is actually doing it.

We have also included in this section information that is specific to particular roles. So, for example, if you are a visitor guide, you can download a document that gives tips on conducting guided tours.
