Volunteer with us and become part of history

Volunteer with us and become part of history

Volunteers play a vital role at The Bishop’s Palace, and contribute to many different aspects of work here:  from supporting front of house operations, to providing maintenance support, to working in the Gardens and Community Garden. We offer volunteers a comprehensive induction, ongoing training, travel expenses and social events.

Would you like to become part of this unique place and help others to enjoy it too?  Contact Siobhan Goodwin, Volunteer Co-Ordinator on 01749 988111  ext 202 to discuss.

We also provide internship opportunities throughout the year. Read more about what previous and current interns have been up to HERE.

Organisations across Wells and the surrounding area, led by The Bishop’s Palace and supported by The Heritage Lottery Fund, have joined together to create a new online platform for our community called Let’s do it Wells

It is a fun, free and easy way to volunteer, take part and support all the wonderful things that go on in our community. Please spread the word. 

Time is precious, and everyone is busy, so we’ve set up challenges that you can do in a matter of minutes, a couple of hours, a day, or more. 

Let’s Do It! Wells launched in Nov 2020, during a national lockdown and we think this shows the spirit of our amazing little city. Against all the odds we are proving to be stronger than ever.
