Volunteering

'When people ask me why I started volunteering for Swanage Pier, it is always easy to answer - the people, the experience, and to make a difference.” 

Pier Volunteer

Due to the dedication and hard work of all our supporters and volunteers, the Pier is looking as glorious today as it might have done over 100 years ago. Swanage Pier Trust is an independent charity, which relies greatly on volunteers to help keep the Pier open for members of the public to visit, alongside helping to preserve it for future generations.

We welcome anyone who has a few hours to spare, would like to meet new people, gain new skills and spend some time in this amazing place. You can help in a variety of ways:

  • Gate duty
  • Shop assistant
  • Painting and Decorating
  • General Maintenance
  • Fundraising/Events
  • Purbeck Coast FM Community Radio
  • Educational Visits
  • Roaming Volunteer

Volunteering with us is rewarding. It provides excellent experience if you are looking to build your work-based skills or have a couple of months to spare before starting a new job. Perhaps you have retired from paid work and want to give something back to the community and make new friends in the process. Or you might be a student looking for work experience.

Whatever your reason is, we would love to hear from you. You can call in at the pier and chat to our friendly team or contact us
