Get involved and help support CAT's vision of a sustainable future, learn valuable skills and meet a diverse range of motivated and engaging volunteers, students, staff and visitors.
Most of our volunteers join the Estates Department, working with either the woodlands and water team or the gardens team. You can read more about these roles below.
However, if you have particular skills you would like to offer to CAT, we’d be delighted to consider applications for other areas. For example, previous volunteers have worked in digital media, marketing, fundraising, visitor engagement, mail order and short courses.
Woodlands and Water
What our previous volunteers have said
As someone who has a degree in Ecology from many years ago but no practical experience to back it up, I am sure that my six months at CAT will really put me back in touch with my love for the environment and demonstrate to future employers my commitment to it.
Joe Wogden – Woodland Volunteer
The CAT staff and volunteers really believe in what they are doing - something you don’t find in many work places. It’s a really inspiring place. A springboard for so many people in so many ways, that’s why so many volunteers wish they could stay.
Rachel Solnick – Gardens Volunteer
