Braziers Park is home to about 20 people of all ages, including an ever-changing team of volunteers from around the world. We usually have up to six resident volunteers staying with us for 1–3 months each. In return for their contribution to Braziers, volunteers get accommodation, meals, and the opportunity to live and learn with us. Volunteering can sometimes be a first step towards joining the community.
We also welcome mid-week volunteers (see below).

Volunteers MUST be at least 18+ years old and have a good understanding of spoken English.
Volunteers from outside the EU must have a valid tourist visa for three months, out of which they can volunteer for a maximum of one month.
