NADFAS Heritage Volunteers are teams of committed non-specialist volunteers who work under the guidance of curators and other professionals to help conserve our heritage.

Volunteers undertake projects for museums, National Trust properties, historic houses, libraries and gardens. They give their time to care for collections, record documents and act as guides and stewards. Click here for a list of 2020 opportunities for volunteering

Currently, 16 SWLDFAS volunteers are giving some 200 hours a month to help at 14 different places. These include:

The work they do ranges from stewarding, greeting visitors and guiding to conserving maps, manuscripts and books.

Our volunteers find the work they do enjoyable and rewarding. The number of hours involved is agreed between individuals and the places they work.
