Family Friendly Opportunities

Volunteers' support makes it possible for us to offer free activities to thousands of families each year. Most family friendly volunteers help on an irregular, ad hoc basis at weekend and holiday events. The volunteers' role is to welcome families and encourage them to engage with a range of activities, including crafts, games, storytelling, dressing up, experiments, trails, and object handling.

It's about being a warm, helpful person who enjoys interacting with young visitors and sharing an enthusiasm for the collections.

As a General Family Friendly volunteer, you can help as much or as little as you like according to how busy you are. Training is on the day: half an hour before the event starts.

If you are looking for something more regular or with greater responsibility (and requiring more training), then one of these roles may appeal:
