SummaryWe're looking for enthusiastic volunteers to support our wonderful museum in the heart of Gloucester Docks.
About the role
Housed in the heart of Gloucester Docks, the National Waterways Museum takes visitors on a journey through the 200-year history of the docks and accompanying Gloucester & Sharpness Canal.
Volunteers are right at the heart of what we do in the museum and help us keep the history of the Docks and Gloucester & Sharpness Canal alive.
We are looking for volunteers to help in various aspects of the museum experience, whether that be providing historical introductions to visitors, assisting with the gift shop and admissions, or getting involved behind the scenes to help care for the site and its exhibits.
What skills are we looking for?
While an interest in local history and heritage can be a bonus, the most important quality we look for is an eagerness to communicate, collaborate and help others. Our team enjoy working together to make the museum experience the best it can be for our customers!
By volunteering with us, you will be part of a team that cares deeply about keeping our museums and history alive and accessible to all.
What we will provide to volunteers💸 Reimbursement of costs
About Canal & River Trust
Canals need many hands to look after them and by volunteering with us you can help make even more miles of canal blue, green and better.
Volunteering is a great way to get active and meet new people, all against the backdrop of our country's stunning canals and rivers. With your help we can help wildlife thrive, and people can find health, happiness and wellbeing on their doorstep.
No other charity brings so much free, open, and accessible blue and green space to the doorstep of so many. With your support, we can continue our work. Our vision is to have living waterways that transform places and enrich lives.
We care for a 2,000-mile-long, 200-year-old, network of canals, rivers, reservoirs and docks because we believe that life is better by water. We provide a space where people can feel happier and healthier, nature is recovering and history is alive. A space for boating, angling, cycling, walking, paddling or just watching the world drift by. Our research shows that spending time by water, whether it be your lunchbreak, daily commute or just a weekend stroll, really can make us feel happier and healthier.
That’s why, here at the Trust, we're working with volunteers and communities across England and Wales to transform canals and rivers into spaces where local people want to spend time and feel better. We know this will bring wellbeing opportunities to millions.
