Do something for you and enjoy the benefits of volunteering.
In the tranquil setting of the Weald & Downland Living Museum, you can connect with the community, meet new people, improve your health, learn new skills and even advance your career.
We welcome applications to volunteer from people with a variety of backgrounds, experiences and age groups.
The Museum is a not-for-profit, educational charity trust and we strive to be as inclusive as possible, however there are a few basic requirements which we need to ensure safety onsite and maintain a high level of visitor experience.
Applicants must be a minimum of 16 years old, able to work independently, as unfortunately the Museum isn’t able to provide one-to-one support across the site, and comfortable to interact with the public as and when required.
If you’d like to join our friendly team, you can read about our volunteer opportunities and access the online application form here. Once we have received your application, we’ll arrange a time for you to come in and meet us.
