There are many ways you can volunteer at The New Forest Heritage Centre. You can: 

  • Join our team of Library volunteers who undertake cataloguing and research tasks.  We also have a team of volunteer Library stewards who assist the public with their enquiries.
  • Join our team of Museum volunteers who facilitate visits within the Museum, helping people to make the most of their time and answer any questions they may have. These Museum stewards also support the Education team when running events within the Museum during the day.
  • Join our team of Events volunteers who help the Education and Fundraising teams to run daytime and evening events and support the fundraising work needed to keep the Museum going.
  • Assist with Administrative tasks.  This could involve anything from sending out leaflets, helping keep databases up to date or applying your own specialist knowledge.  As we get to know you and your skills we may invite you to support some of our administrative work.
  • Support the Fundraising team to continue to develop the Friends membership group to raise funds for the Museum and help with events.

We are currently specifically seeking volunteers to support our front of house team with answering visitor enquiries as we get into the busy season.  Full training is provided and more details about the role can be found here.
