Heritage Volunteers


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.


NADFAS 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.

Current projects include:

  • On-site conservation of books, manuscripts, archives and maps
  • Cataloguing documents and archival listing
  • Conservation of arms and armour, medals and military silver
  • Preventative conservation of textiles, replica work and creation of period costumes
  • Guiding and stewarding in museums, historic houses and gardens


Use NADFAS Heritage Volunteers to support your project


If your organisation could benefit from a team of enthusiastic, disciplined and committed volunteers to help with collection care, documentation, stewarding or guiding, talk to us about our Heritage Volunteers.
