There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer with our project – from getting hands-on with archaeological digs, becoming an ambassador for the Hidden Hillfort or co-delivering outreach sessions – there is something for everyone. Volunteering is an incredible way to develop skills, contribute to your community and meet new people. We believe in working co-productively meaning that we work with people to develop opportunities based on their needs, interests and skills: this means that volunteering with us can be really bespoke.

Love Our Hillfort
The ‘Love Our Hillfort’ community group is comprised of volunteers who want to positively engage with, conserve and improve the experience, appreciation and understanding of Caerau Hillfort and its broader environs. Through community campaigns targeting local issues and the creation of a safe, accessible heritage trail network, the group are proactive and responsive to community need.
