Volunteering

Alford Heritage Museum has been run exclusively by Volunteers since 1991. There are so many ways to get involved! You need not have experience or specific knowledge of the collections to volunteer, just enthusiasm and interest. Maybe you enjoy telling stories, like the idea of welcoming and hosting visitors or perhaps you’d enjoy hands-on opportunities working with the collection?

There are so many benefits to volunteering: socialising and sharing, feeling part of the community, and developing new skills. Have a watch of this video to find out more:

Saltire awards are available for young volunteers and reference writing is offered to all volunteers upon request. The museum is committed to valuing the interests and talents of individual volunteers, and with continued support, we are confident that your time spent volunteering will be a positive and fulfilling experience.
