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

  • Join our new Visitor Enquiry volunteer team, supporting the Front of House staff during our busiest seasons, helping with general enquiries about the New Forest as well as specific enquiries about the Heritage Centre and its activities.
  • Join our team of Collections 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 Steward 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.
  • Support the Fundraising team to continue to develop the Friends membership group to raise funds for the Museum and help with events.

  Full training is provided for all the roles and we are always interested if you feel you have specialist skills you can offer.
