Heritage Volunteers

Heritage Volunteering provides opportunities to learn new skills, meet people with similar interests and support the arts.   From the conservation of books to projects in historic parks and gardens, Heritage Volunteers are helping to conserve and protect the nations’ heritage. There are many different roles working closely with conservators, stewards and archivists in heritage sites, working as a team and in wonderful surroundings.

Projects have included The Wiener Holocaust Library in Russell Square, the Bentley Priory Museum, Mansion House Drive in Stanmore, The Reform Club, The Royal Academy, and stewarding at the Design Museum on Kensington High Street.

Volunteers are given training before being placed on a project and can join training days such as Book Conservation or courses at The Royal School of Needlework.

Members interested in joining the Heritage Volunteering Project should call 020 7430 0730 or email: enq@theartssocietykensingtonchelsea.com
