Make 2021 the year you volunteer with our award winning Victoria Baths team!
We depend upon our fantastic team of volunteers. Thanks to their enthusiasm and generosity, we are able to keep this iconic building open to the public, and to ensure its future. In 2019, we won the prestigious Queens Award for Volunteering.
We have a range of exciting events throughout the year, and there are lots of different ways to get involved.
Who can volunteer?
Anyone can volunteer at Victoria Baths, no matter what your skills, experience or background. For most roles all you need is enthusiasm and a willingness to learn.
We have a range of flexible opportunities available, and you can choose to make a regular commitment or simply help out occasionally.
What will I get out of volunteering?
Whether you want to develop new skills and enhance your CV, or just want to have fun and meet new people, there are lots of good reasons to volunteer with us.
After completing 20 hours of volunteering, our volunteers also enjoy a range of extra benefits:
free membership of the Friends of Victoria Baths, who receive newsletters and e-news about events and restoration
free entry to Wednesday tours and at our public events throughout the season
Whichever opportunity interests you, you will receive plenty of support to help you get the most out of your volunteering experience.
What opportunities are available?
