How can you help us?

At present we are working on a £2.8 million project called 'For the Record'.  Amongst other things, it is providing skills training and volunteering opportunities for people interested in gathering, keeping and sharing the documented history of Gloucestershire.

The project will run until 2020 and we will be posting details of current volunteering opportunities on this page.  We'll be offering more and a greater variety of these as our project progresses. 

As a member of Gloucester Heritage Forum, we can also put you in touch with other heritage organisations that recruit volunteers.  If you would like us to do this please email your request and an attached CV to us and we will forward your message to them.

Opportunities will appear here as they become available.
