volunteer with us

At Susan's Farm we really value the work our volunteers do for us, whether that's feeding the animals,  maintaining our farm, helping out at events or working alongside those we support. 

 

We are always looking for more volunteers, so we can continue to develop what we offer and help even more people enjoy working on the farm and with nature.

 

If you have some time to offer, whether that's just for a few hours now and again, or a few hours every week, we'd love to hear from you. Volunteering is a rewarding experience for any age, and we offer you lots of support and training to ensure your volunteering is fulfilling and enjoyable.

 

Our Volunteer Co-ordinator, Susan Aglionby,  can discuss volunteering opportunities with you.

 

Please note that due to the type of work we do at Susan's Farm, most volunteers will require a clear enhanced DBS check with barred list check as detailed in our Safer Recruitment Policy.
