Volunteer with Us

Join our Volunteer Team!


Embercombe is renowned for its warm welcoming and friendly community of volunteers. We are currently recruiting for people to join our popular volunteer team in the areas below. Join us! We are seeking expressions of interest for our next cohort for 2022/2023.

Please show your expression of interest by filling in our Application Form.

Our residential volunteer positions require a commitment of a minimum of 3 months. We are short of space this year so we would especially love to hear from anyone who has their own live-in vehicle or other suitable accommodation option. If you have any questions please contact volunteering@embercombe.org


Volunteering Details

In exchange for an average 28-hour working week, you will join our volunteer village in simple, single-occupancy accommodation, in our beautiful Medicine Garden alongside a shared, communal lounge and kitchen. We also have space available for park-up / live-in vehicles and positions are open to those local, living off site, as well. In return for the contribution, assistants receive all meals whilst our programme kitchen is in delivery, together with a monthly stipend of £320.

For each position, there will be opportunity to support the ‘behind-the-scenes’ organisational running that enables our team to fulfill Embercombe’s aims, alongside possibilities for self-directed learning with support available in areas of interest.

As a thriving organisation, one of our core principles is the embodied philosophy of providing service to others and the greater collective, and we are therefore looking for responsible individuals with capacity for calmness, flexibility and responsiveness in a busy work-place. Set in a quiet rural location, you will be living in close proximity with the land and to each other, so it is important that you feel comfortable, considerate and caring within group/shared living.
