Volunteer

Why volunteer at Weston Museum?

Our volunteers give their time for a variety of different reasons; some are passionate about history and heritage, some are using the skills gained through their volunteer experience as a stepping stone to paid employment, and some simply want to avoid social isolation. Whatever your reason may be, joining our team will enable you fulfill personal goals whilst helping sustain your local community museum.

What we can offer you

We are committed to providing and promoting equal opportunities and openly encourage diversity amongst our volunteer team. All of our volunteers are supported by our induction process and within their chosen roles. We offer a variety of training opportunities to enable our volunteers to gain new skills and knowledge. The museum team also aims to give our volunteers an enjoyable and stimulating experience in a safe, welcoming environment.
To give everyone a chance to meet other volunteers and members of the museum team, we hold regular volunteer social events. These range from a get together over coffee, to trips to local places of interest.
