About our Volunteer Makers

Our volunteers at Chelmsford Museum are a community of individuals, teams and organisations working alongside the Museums to create an inspiring and diverse museums service. We recognise the importance of our volunteers as our biggest champions, and aim to put them at the heart of what we do- whether its helping us for a minute, a day or more regularly! Chelmsford Volunteer Makers is an opportunity for anyone with a passion or interest in Chelmsford Museums and volunteering to support us and get involved.

Our volunteers are from all walks of life, they are individuals, teams and organisations who range from students, retirees, parents and children. As such we aim to offer a wide range of opportunities to get involved with our collections, displays, learning programmes and research, to ensure that our museums reflect the diversity and creativity of Chelmsford. We appreciate that all of our volunteers bring different skills and expertise to the table, and aim to give everyone the opportunity to develop and use them! Whether you are a Engineering expert, an amateur historian or simply want to get involved with something new, you can become a Chelmsford Museums Volunteer Maker!

Anyone can join our volunteer community, whether you’ve got a minute to spare, can give a day, or want to volunteer regularly. New volunteer projects and challenges will be regularly posted on this website and participants are encouraged to sign up and accept the challenges!
