What did you do today?

Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood has all sorts of ways you can get involved as a volunteer.

Volunteers are absolutely vital to the work of the National Trust at Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood. Last year just over 215 volunteers contributed over 22,400 hours in a variety of roles from room guides to volunteering alongside our outdoors team. We literally couldn’t do it without them and are very grateful to every single one of them for the contribution they make.

We’re currently on the lookout for more volunteers and if you’re interested in joining our team then, whatever your skills, background or experience, chances are we have something on offer that will appeal to you. There is no such thing as a ‘typical volunteer’ and no prior skills or experience is needed as training is provided for all our roles.

Roles currently on offer include:

  • Buggy Driver and Car Park Assistant – Help ensure the car park runs smoothly and drive the buggy which runs between the property and the car park.
  • Room Guides – Bring the Hall and Museum to life by inspiring visitors and sharing the stories of their place in an interesting and inspiring way.
  • Welcome Volunteers – Provide a warm welcome to the property and help visitors to orientate themselves
  • Learning Volunteers – Help deliver our education programme for school visits by leading workshops and tours of the museum
  • Volunteer Recruitment Co-ordinator – help ensure that volunteer applications are dealt with smoothly and in a timely fashion.
  • And many, many more...
