At Othona Burton Bradstock, up to six core members live and work full-time so that other people can visit, take part in our programmed events and share in the experience of community. We appreciate offers of volunteer help with a range of tasks, indoors and out. To find out more about our community, go to www.othonawestdorset.org.uk and browse through the pages. From time to time, we welcome help from: Locally based volunteers, coming in for the day to help us at various times with such things as: • vegetable gardening • cooking and cleaning • log splitting • grounds maintenance • painting • envelope stuffing If you are interested in joining our locals’ network, contact caroline@othona-bb.org.uk for a list of up-coming Locals’ Days and Events. Volunteers from further afield who stay with us – usually for a week – during our busiest times to help out with general core community work. This helps us cover, for instance, when core members take holidays. Almost always these volunteers will already be familiar with Othona, rather than coming for their first visit. They need to ‘know the ropes’ and be ready to take on a range of duties from welcoming visitors to cleaning or making breakfast for up to 30 people. If you’re interested in this, we ask you to spend some time with us as a visitor first.

Throughout the year, volunteers from all over the world are welcomed to join in the work and life of the Abbey. Men and women of all ages and backgrounds come here to work, play, make new friends and enjoy the beauty and tranquility of this unique place. We offer comfortable accommodation, good food and a friendly welcome. In return we ask that volunteers respect our values and be willing to help. A helpful attitude is more important than particular skills or abilities, though we welcome initiative and do try to employ volunteers where they are happiest. Most find it to be a very rewarding experience. Many of our volunteers come through the WWOOF UK or HelpX networks but individual arrangements can be made by contacting us directly. Applicants who are not current members of WWOOF or HelpX should send two references, including at least one from an employer, with any inquiry. We accept residential volunteers for stays of 2-6 weeks in the first instance. We also welcome local people who are able to offer help on a regular, non-residential basis. ***PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE ABBEY WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT***
