What are Heritage Volunteers?

Heritage Volunteers are teams of committed non-specialist volunteers who work under the guidance of curators and other professionals to help conserve our heritage.

Heritage Volunteers undertake projects for:

  • Museums
  • National Trust properties
  • Historic houses
  • Libraries and gardens

They give their time to care for collections, record documents and act as guides and stewards.

Current projects across the country include:

  • On-site conservation of books, manuscripts, archives and maps
  • Cataloguing documents and archival listing
  • Conservation of arms and armour, medals and military silver
  • Preventative conservation of textiles, replica work and creation of period costumes
  • Guiding and stewarding in museums, historic houses and gardens.
