Volunteer Role 

Our staff and volunteers are integral to the success of the village.

Port Sunlight could not function as we do without the invaluable support of our volunteers. Volunteers themselves also gain a lot from their work at the Trust: they develop new skills, make new friends and get to contribute to their local community. Volunteer roles include:

 Meeting and greeting visitors at our Edwardian worker’s cottage
Meeting and greeting visitors at Port Sunlight Museum
Helping out at special events, e.g. lectures, village trails, shows and road races
Carrying out historical and collections-based research
Caring for our collections
Leading learning sessions with schools and other visitors
 Surveying our buildings
• Helping to maintain our bedding displays

Our commitment to supporting and developing our volunteers is outlined in our Volunteer agreement form.
