An exciting and fulfilling opportunity to make a real difference

Be a key part of making the Paxton House Trust a success and help us fulfil our role in safeguarding and sharing the extraordinary heritage of our Palladian house, its collections and gardens, its riverside and community activities. You will have great support from our team of trustees who, together, have the most extraordinary range of skills.




Get Involved

As a charity, The Paxton House Trust relies on several dedicated teams of volunteers to help run our visitor experience.  We are fortunate that so many talented individuals are prepared to give up time and come together to work on a whole variety of tasks at Paxton.  In turn, they enjoy being part of life at Paxton, working in beautiful surroundings and making friends with likeminded people. We’d love you to be involved too – why not get in touch to find out more.
