Volunteering Opportunities



Willowbank’s volunteering program is an integral part of the day to day running of the park.


We take on board gateway students, work experience, vet students and everyday volunteers. We also take international interns however you must go through to apply.


We also cater for group volunteer days. If you have a group that wants to give back or do some team building in a unique way contact us. We have several areas in the park that always need a little working bee to help with the upkeep.
