Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums (or TWAM) manage ten museums and galleries across the North East. The venues are:
One of our most important aims is to make a positive difference in people’s lives through the exhibitions, programmes and services we deliver.
This is where you come in.
Volunteers are essential to the work that we do. You can help to ensure that all of our museums and galleries are innovative, imaginative, creative, totally inclusive, secure and sustainable.
In turn, we hope volunteering will help you to develop new skills and interests, meet friendly, like-minded people, gain confidence and a sense of well-being, and even strengthen your CV, or curriculum vitae.
Use this space to find out about new opportunities to volunteer and make a positive contribution to our museums and galleries. New opportunities will be added regularly, making it easier for you to get involved, whether you have 10 minutes to spare or want to volunteer on a weekly basis.
Please note - The Volunteer team is currently short staffed so there may be delays in responding to queries, we will reply as soon as possible.
