Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

The museum welcomes volunteer applications for the purpose of the DofE volunteering strand to assist with any of the wide range of museum activities.

The museum can accommodate up to four DofE volunteers every week during its opening hours, either at the weekends or after school on a weekday afternoon.

Most volunteers learn and help with the role of steward, but other activities are also possible.  The minimum period for each session is one hour but this can be extended if desired, and is continued weekly for a period of between three and twelve months.  Volunteers are trained and supported by the duty managers in the role of steward and by appropriate volunteers for other activities.  They are encouraged and supported to undertake additional projects of their own choosing related to the museum’s activities and collections.
