Volunteer Opportunities

We have a wide range of roles for volunteers, which are shown below. In addition, a volunteer role is sometimes developed from a potential volunteer’s specific skills or interests. As an example, Mappin Writers, our creative writing group, was originally set up as the result of a new volunteer’s initiative. Read more about each of the roles below.
