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.

Let’s do it Wells!
Have you ever wanted to help out, take part or simply find out about everything that is going on in the amazing little city of Wells?
Thanks to a new initiative, now you can, by visiting the newly launched online platform called “Let’s Do It Wells!”
Users can sign up for challenges that vary from a few minutes of their time, to regular volunteering, or they can simply click on the events calendar to find out what they can join in with. A great way to boost a CV, learn new skills or why not make it part of your new year’s resolution for 2021? Many tasks can be done from the comfort of your own home and it’s a great way to be involved in the community even if you can’t get out and about right now.
The site launched on 30 November and The Bishop’s Palace, Wells Coronavirus Network, and the Connect Centre have been working on the initiative over the last few months. Thanks to Heritage Lottery Funding, The Bishop’s Palace has been able to purchase a cutting edge system from a local company that has developed Volunteer Makers digital platforms across the UK https://volunteermakers.org/.
