Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation. Except for the admin function, all our work is carried out by people like you, who work unpaid to further the aims of the charity. It is rewarding work as part of a great team – and you don’t have to be a transport enthusiast to take part.

After I retired I wanted to do some volunteer work, and the Archive was a revelation. Where else could I be doing something I love and also feel that I am doing something useful? The company is fantastic; the first day I worked there I was hooked and still am after three years.”
Volunteer at Droitwich Centre
I thoroughly enjoy working at the Archive, being around like minded people and doing interesting work. There are truly fascinating things here, for example the styles of information leaflets and booklets produced over the years.”
Volunteer at Walsall Centre

You can volunteer at any of our Research Centres – Acton, Droitwich and Walsall - and also at our storage facility at Telford. Times are flexible and you will receive full training for the tasks you undertake. Each Centre is under the supervision of a Lead Volunteer.

We are looking for people with a range of skills to do such work as sorting donated material, cataloguing details onto a computer, and scanning documents and images. No previous experience is required and the times are flexible.

So if you want to work in a welcoming and supportive environment, just get in touch.
