How to find volunteering opportunities in England
You can access these opportunities in two ways.
Your first option is to buy our Directory of Volunteering opportunities which lists these opportunities in a PDF. This gives you a document that is easy to search, and which you can use even when you’re not connected to the internet.
More importantly with the directory, you will also get a list of questions to ask to make sure you get the most out of your volunteering experience. We know how important it is to clarify expectations and to get a clear idea of what you’re signing up for before you volunteer. I know that there are opportunities we signed up for that didn’t end up being what we expected. A conversation with the hosts before we turned up would have helped us avoid a few uncomfortable situations. You can find our Directory of Volunteering opportunities abroad here.
The second option is to look for the opportunties below.
We consistently add new volunteering opportunities to each country so do check in regularly to find some great responsible volunteering opportunities abroad. We would also love your help in keeping this list up to date and useful. If you know of any other places that should be featured, or maybe you’ve visited a place and would like to share your story, please get in touch.
We really hope this information helps you volunteer abroad in a way that makes your travels feel meaningful and memorable.

Organisation: Trill Farm
Location: East Devon, England
Website: Trill Farm
We benefit greatly from the enthusiasm and fresh ideas volunteers bring to our farming practice. Most of our longer-term volunteers come through wwoof (willing workers on organic farms). This a fantastic scheme that enables people from all over the world to work in exchange for room and board on organic farms – learning lots as they go.
We look for wwoofers who can spend a month with us, working seven hours a days, five days a week in return for a room and rather delicious food! The accommodation is basic but beautiful – an insulated wooden cabin with a lounge & kitchen, shower and toilet facilities are in a separate building close by. We have three twin rooms that are shared with someone of the same sex. To contact us, please click the link above. Thanks!
Organisation: Keveral Farm
Location: Looe, Cornwall
Keveral Farm is an organic farm community near Looe, Cornwall (in the south-west of England). The original community was established in 1973, and the farm is now owned and managed co-operatively by the members of the community. We are about 10 adults. We live in a farmhouse, static caravans, a wooden cabin and a barn conversion.
We take working visitors (including WWOOFers) to help us with our work, in exchange for food and accommodation or camping. To find out more please contact us.
