What is Volunteer Makers?

Volunteer Makers is our new volunteering website, which seeks to break down one of the biggest challanges to volunteering- Time! We want everyone to get involved with the museum no matter what their schedule is like. Even if you can only spare a couple of minutes, you can be a Chelmsford Museum Volunteer Maker! We will constantly be updating the website as new volunteering opportunities arise, whether its helping us raise our profile online, or helping at one of our popular events!

I've signed up, am I now a Volunteer?

Yes you are! However, for some opportunities signing up to the site and accepting a challange is only the first step. In these cases one of our staff members will get in touch with the next steps. This may involve collecting more information from you about you past experience, collecting references and asking you to come in for a chat!

I want to be a regular Volunteer, but I can't see any challanges?

We are constantly looking to expand and update what opportunities and roles we are able to offer. However, some of our opportunities have limited availability. We will add opportunities to the site as they arise as challanges for you to accept.

How do I get in touch with the museum?

You can contact us via the 'contact' tab or email museums@chelmsford.gov.uk
