support buddy - Volunteering Roles

Aside from being a popular visitor attraction, Ouseburn Farm Charity provides training and education for adults with learning difficulties and disabilities. We're looking for volunteers to join us in a support role to work alongside our trainees, helping them to take part in activities and accomplish their routine tasks.

Our trainees work in various areas of the farm, including livestock, horticulture, catering and cooking, arts and crafts, photography and creative arts. Volunteers are required to work directly with trainees to assist in promoting skills development, lift their spirits and encourage independence by ensuring the process is enriching. 

If you have time to give and would like to support others in a diverse and unique setting please get in touch today.

Volunteer with us

We are always looking for new volunteers to join us here at the farm. Specific areas we need more volunteers for are:

- Horticulture

- Cafe

- Kitchen

- Carpentry

However, if you've got a particular set of skills that we could benefit from here at the farm, please do give us a shout. Without the help of committed volunteers, we could not continue this work. Many of our volunteers have great skills that are incredibly useful to the farm, and this could be an opportunity for you!

No matter how much or how little of your time you can give, we would like to hear from you.


Make an appointment with a member of our staff by giving us a call on 0191 232 3698 or by getting in touch online.

Please note, there is an application process for all volunteers including contacting referees prior to your first volunteering shift.
