We're saying a big thank you to all of our volunteers and volunteer managers this International Volunteer Managers Day. Read more to find out what our heritage volunteers have been getting up to.
Role: Heritage adviser
Heritage admin, surveying and heritage skills
In 2003, back then there was little support and mixed feelings about working with volunteers.
As much as I can spare which isn’t nearly enough
Managing a range of skills and the great satisfaction of seeing volunteers doing something well
Good management is everything and with honourable exceptions it needs far more time and support than you think
Positive encouragement and adapting when things don’t go to plan
Hands Around The World (third world grass roots projects), Freedom from Torture (medical support for asylum seekers who have been tortured) and Forest of Dean Building Preservation Trust.
