Volunteer with the Willow Trust

Join our team of volunteer helpers and enjoy the benefit of the tranquillity of the beautiful Gloucester-Sharpness Canal while accompanying our guests on an unparalleled day out of fun and freedom on the water.

Volunteering with the Willow Trust

Spend 14 days on the water between April and October and make the day out a memorable one for our guests.  Every weekday in the season, Spirit of Freedom II and Leonard Matchan take to the water with up to 30 guests each on board. Both boats go out with one of our trained skippers, Buzz and John, and three or four volunteers, who are on board to host the day out.


Whilst you will be on your feet for most of the day, there is the chance to sit down and chat to our guests as well.  All our guests are accompanied by their own carers so you will not need to be first aid trained or undergo DBS checks.


NO boating experience is required.

If you are interested in hearing more, please call Sophie on 01285 651661. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Team.
