Charterhouse community

The Charterhouse is an almshouse and museum based near the Barbican, providing residential care to a community of elderly people since 1611.

Situated on 7 acres in central London, the majority of our buildings date back to the Tudor period, with elements of medieval, Victorian and more modern architecture. With links to some of the most famous people and periods throughout English history, this is an exciting time to join the organisation.

Volunteering opportunities

We often have lots of exciting opportunities to volunteer at the Charterhouse for anyone aged 18 and over. If you’re looking to gain experience for your CV and develop new skills we may have an opportunity for you in our museum, learning, infirmary and gardening programmes.

Under 18s
Unfortunately at this time we cannot take any volunteers who are under 18 years of age. As an alternative, we do offer two student work experience placements per year, organised through our partners Inspire! We are unable to take any direct requests outside of this.

Gardening Volunteers

We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated volunteers who can help to maintain a garden of historical interest, with an additional focus on improving and maintaining the aesthetic impact of the site overall. The team meets every Wednesday afternoon (although there is no requirement to attend every week), and does spend half the time doing light Gardening chores in the Garden before a different activity, normally involving flower arranging using items cut freshly from the Garden.  If you are interested in joining, please see the Role Description for further details, and email with a completed Expression of Interest form.
