RAF Museum Volunteering

Access Advisory Group

Access Advisory Group

Help us to inspire everyone with the RAF story, by offering advice on how we can make the RAF Museum accessible to all


What is the Access Advisory Group?

We want to be able to share the RAF story with everyone, including those living with all kinds of disability, visible or hidden. Our Access Advisory Group is a group of volunteers who meet to support and advise the Museum in ensuring access for all. Examples of previous areas of group input include the exhibitions in H1 and H6 (to commemorate the centenary of the RAF) and also the access information available on our website.


What will I be doing?

  • Attending meetings a few times a year either online or on site
  • Giving your opinion and advice on matters relating to access


This role is perfect for you if you…

  • Live/have lived with a disability or have an understanding of living with a disability
  • Have an interest in museums and a commitment to making museums accessible
  • Have the ability and willingness to use your experience to help us improve access throughout the Museum
  • Are committed to attending three meetings per year either online or at the Museum


How much time would I need to commit?

The group meets three times per year (on dates to be agreed.) Meetings last for approximately two hours and are usually held during Museum opening times. We may also send occasional emails asking for advice and opinions.


What’s in it for me?

  • Meeting people and making new friends
  • Helping heritage to be accessible to all
  • 20% staff discount in gift shop and café
  • Travel and food expenses reimbursed up to £10 per day, in line with our policy
