Culture Volunteers


Welcome to Culture Volunteers!


This is where you will find more information about volunteer roles in museums, arts, sports and recreation in the BCP (Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole) area. 

We are always looking for people with specific skills, as well as those who are keen to learn new skills. Whether you want to gain experience in a particular sector, pass your knowledge on to others, make new friends or give something back to the community - we've got a role for you! 

You might be stewarding crowds of people at fabulous arts festivals, gardening at one of the beautiful museum or library gardens or helping us to open Scaplen's Court Museum. Alternatively, there's opportunities to survey visitors, help with data input or research in Poole History Centre.
