Volunteering Resources

Volunteers are the life blood of most museums – without them many museums would not even exist, others would not be able to provide half the services they do.

Volunteering is a two way process: properly set up and managed the museum can give as much to the volunteer as the volunteer gives to the museum.

The links below take you to two resources, reviewed and updated in 2016: the Sustainable Volunteering Resources developed by the South West Museum Development Programme  and the Volunteers Toolkit produced by Exeter Cultural Partnership
