Become a volunteer

Would you like to support the work of the Heritage Centre by volunteering? 

We could not deliver many of our services without our volunteers, they are a key part of the team, and without them we would not be able to share the story and history of anaesthesia so widely. 

There are a wide range of opportunities available for getting involved;

  • Improving collections information within the collections management system (ADLIB)
  • Historical research – you don’t always need to travel to London to do this, some can be carried out remotely.
  • Answering enquiries from members and the public
  • Providing tours and talks and hosting object handling sessions
  • Oral histories – interviewing and editing interviews and transcripts
  • Collections management tasks such as inventory listing, audits, object handling storage and packing, cataloguing and data cleaning in ADLIB.
  • Co-curation of temporary and travelling exhibitions
  • Attending conferences and events and supporting the heritage exhibition stands

Please read our Handbook for more information.
