The Gasworks Sudbury Needs You!

We are looking for likeminded souls to join our friendly family of volunteers at our newly restored Grade II listed heritage site.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering at The Gasworks Sudbury is a great opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills and make a real impact in creating a welcoming community space for Sudbury Parish and its visitors.
We welcome families that would like to volunteer together. Volunteering as a family gives you the chance to spend quality time together without the costs of a traditional day out. Volunteering as a family is suitable for children aged 10 and up. We are open to discussions around age based on your individual circumstances.
