Volunteering

When you volunteer at the Charterhouse you will become part of our community – we are a vibrant mix of people from all walks of life, dedicated to continuing the aims of a four-hundred-year-old charity. We hope you will enjoy being part of this community, as well as the peace and security of our walled heritage site, the gardens, and the social opportunities.

The contribution of our volunteers is incredibly important, and we value the difference that they make to our community. Volunteering opportunities include working in our museum, assisting in maintaining our gardens, and befriending residents in our registered care home.

Current Opportunities

Garden Volunteers

We are currently seeking enthusiastic and experienced garden volunteers, to join our team in caring for the beautiful gardens here at the Charterhouse. Enclosed within the Charterhouse walls, the gardens provide an oasis of green and calm for our Brothers and residents, and they are regularly enjoyed by members of the public attending tours and events.

Keeping the gardens well maintained throughout the year and supporting biodiversity is extremely rewarding, and our garden volunteers are essential to making that happen. No professional gardening experience is necessary, but an energetic and practical approach, and a keen interest in plants and gardens are extremely welcome!

For full details of the volunteer role, including timings,  please see the Garden Volunteer Role Description.

To apply, please download and complete the Volunteer Application Form, and submit your application to Justin, our Head Gardener, at justin.dennis@thecharterhouse.org.

Successful applicants will be invited to come and meet the Gardening team, and attend a practical trial afternoon in the gardens.
