About our roles
We aim to widen access, increase depth of participation, and promote diversity, equality and social outcomes through our volunteering opportunities. It's about working in a mutually beneficial way to make the most of volunteers' talents, experience and interests, and recognising the positive contributions they make to visitors and the collections.
We are extremely grateful to all our volunteers. We hope they enjoy sharing their enthusiasm and developing their skills in an inspiring, supportive environment.
Our volunteering opportunities
Handling plesiosaur fossils with the general public, digitising historic prints and conservation documents, welcoming visitors to temporary exhibitions, and helping to run the year-round programme of family friendly events - these are just a few of the opportunities that volunteers have been involved in in recent months.
