From Admin to Zombies!

There are lots of different ways of getting involved in volunteering at Newhaven Fort.

You could find yourself doing all sorts of things including; assisting with databases, administration, serving refreshments in the Tea Room, helping to design exhibitions and curating displays, creating worksheets for schools, getting involved with special events and yes…dressing as a zombie for a fun run!

We are always on the lookout for new volunteers who want to offer their time and enthusiasm. We have six main areas, or roles, that people volunteer in. These are:

We are committed to treating all of our volunteers with great care and respect and that means we take our time in making sure everyone understands what is involved. We deliberately don’t ask anyone to list lots of different skills and we firmly believe everyone and we, mean EVERYONE, has the potential to offer something to help make the Fort what it is…a respectful and caring historical and learning environment, which offers every single visitor a wonderful experience. If that’s important to you, then we would love to hear from you.
