The National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow has volunteer opportunities for unemployed or economically inactive persons.

If you work with, or your organisation has members that would be interested in this, they can contact Betheney Wills on

The National Lobster Hatchery received funding from Cornwall Development Company to enable an equal opportunities volunteering scheme to be run during 2012- 2013. This scheme gives unemployed persons living in Cornwall a chance to get a foot back on the employment ladder by acquiring new and interesting skills with us at the Hatchery.

The National Lobster Hatchery is based in the Cornish fishing village of Padstow. Their aim is to help maintain a healthy lobster population in Cornwall through conservation, education and research, supported by our fun visitor centre and the donations of our sponsors and friends.
