Volunteer Roles

Community Trips Boats Crew

We run a “not-for-profit” Community Trip Boats operation where any income over-and-above operating costs is reinvested into the restoration/regeneration, improvement, and education promotional initiatives for the canal. Our boats are based at Goytre Wharf, near Llanover, a tranquil rural location on the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal. The Wharf, located within the Brecon Beacons National Park, is well equipped with a café, toilets, car-park and large coach-parking area. We are disability aware and dementia friendly. More information can be obtained about or boats here.

You will be an ideal crew member if you enjoy meeting people, are reasonably fit, like working as part of a team, enjoy outsider pursuits, like learning new skills, and can take direction. You do not need any previous experience as all training will be given but an interest in boating and the canal would be helpful. You decide on how much or little volunteering time you can give. You will learn new skills and every trip is different.

We always welcome additional help to manage our boats. If you would like to join our friendly boat volunteer team, we would be delighted to hear from you.


Our Trust is looking for a Treasurer to look after our accounts. This voluntary post would suit someone with recent accountancy or financial management experience, looking for an interesting and worthwhile role supporting a small volunteer run local Charity dedicated to the well-being and restoration of the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal.

We have recently moved to an online accounting system which now allows much of the work to be done remotely.

More information about our Trust can be found on our website here https://mbact.org.uk/

If you would like further information, discuss the post, or wish to apply, please email to info@mbact.org.uk

Information Officer

We are looking for an Information Officer to manage communication with our Members, stakeholders and the press. This voluntary post would suit someone with good writing skills, who is comfortable working with word processors such as MS Word, email, and is familiar with posting to social media such as our Facebook page, Instagram and our News on this site. The role involves actively seeking out stories about the Trust and its activities, writing these up and presenting them in an engaging and accessible style for posting to social media and publication to our Reed Warbler magazine. A detailed briefing about the Trust and its activities will be given.

Please contact us to discuss this opportunity.

Other Volunteering Opportunities

Our Trust only exists and functions because of the dedication of our volunteers. We welcome offers of assistance whether it be to work on the canals cleaning up rubbish, cutting back undergrowth, organising events, undertaking administrative work, helping to run our Community Trip Boats, or assisting in looking after our Fourteen Locks Canal Information Centre in Newport. There is a whole host of roles that we need help with. You can read more about our general volunteering roles on our Volunteering Opportunities page. If you can spare some time, please complete our Volunteer Registration form and our Volunteer Officer will get back to you to discuss the options available. You will find us a very friendly and welcoming group of canal enthusiasts.
