Volunteering for the National Park Authority doesn’t always mean working outdoors or travelling to different sites.
Our centres at Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, Castell Henllys Iron Age Village and Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre also need volunteers. Opportunities to volunteer at our Headquarters in Pembroke Dock may be available, so if you have a flair for organising and archiving, get in touch.
