Heritage Volunteers give significant help to museums, historic houses, galleries and libraries.  Within the Sussex Area volunteers are helping at Arundel Castle, Worthing Museum, Brighton Pavilion, Cowdray, the Weald and Downland Living Museum, Newhaven Fort and Petworth House.  Volunteers can choose how many hours and how often they can commit to any project.  Activities range from cleaning glass and silver to guiding and stewarding or cataloguing books and images, repairing textiles and even cleaning suits of armour.

Occasionally Study Days are organised to introduce volunteers to projects. For example an Arms and Armour Conservation Day was held at the Wallace Collection in 2013 where Heritage Volunteers were able to gain hands-on experience in conservation under the guidance of the Wallace conservation team.

Current Opportunities

There are no current projects organised by this society.  However our members volunteer on an individual basis for a whole variety of local organisations.
