Places needing Volunteers

These communities have said that they are currently looking for volunteers. In addition many communities are also members of WWOOF (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) and welcome volunteers via this scheme. Here's a list of communities that are WWOOF Hosts.

Lothlorien (Rokpa Trust) is a Buddhist influenced therapeutic community for people with mental health problems. Quiet rural setting in SW Scotland. Daily activities include organic gardening, relaxation, artwork, etc. We are seeking full time live-in volunteers who can commit for a minimum of six months. Generous living and travel expenses, accommodation and meals are provided. See our website for further details & application form.

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***

We are looking for a Residential Assistant Warden (as of July 2019) who will work to support Chris and Katharine in the day to day running of Windsor Hill Wood, participating fully in the community’s weekly rhythm, coming alongside the guests and taking on your share of the communal tasks. This will include looking after the animals, cooking once a week, working on the land, cleaning and attending meetings. You will be able to run Windsor Hill Wood while the Warden and family go away on holiday or for days off. This is a volunteer position although all your board, lodging and bills would be paid for, and you would receive a small weekly personal allowance. The accommodation for the Assistant Warden is suitable for a single person or a couple.

Happy to have volunteers. Depending on length of stay we may as for a contribution to bills/food costs as we don't have much cash. Always open to negotiations and if your skill set is particularly useful to the project then we will be very open to you staying for free.
