Volunteering is an ideal opportunity to enjoy a rewarding break where you can quickly feel part of our thriving community. The volunteer work on offer is varied and provides a perfect opportunity to experience the Buddhist way of life first hand for a week.

Bodhisattva Centre is a Grade 2* Listed Building located in the city of Brighton & Hove in East Sussex, just south of London. It is situated in 2 acres of gardens several kilometres from the shores of the English Channel. It provides a quiet and reflective environment for a meaningful break.

The work is varied and could include cooking and/or serving in our World Peace Cafe, gardening, office work, decorating etc. We also have various building projects on the go at any one time that you could get involved in. We are always interested to hear about any specific skills you may be able to offer. Although the work is not always strenuous you will need to be reasonably fit and active to come on a working visit.

Sundays and Mondays are free days, so an ideal time to explore the city and beach of Brighton & Hove which are within walking distance; as well as the surrounding countryside of the South Downs and coastline.  London is an hour’s train journey away.  You are welcome to attend to our events or just relax in the friendly atmosphere of the Centre and Peace Garden.

To apply for a working visit, please contact us.

Please note: Since Bodhisattva Centre is a Buddhist Centre, visitors are asked not to drink alcohol or smoke on the premises. We also ask the visitors not to play musical instruments or sound systems on the property.
