Before you can register your interest for this opportunity you must be registered as a volunteer.

Register with the Volunteer Centre, or if you have already registered, please log in

Due to Safeguarding requirements, we are unable to accept anyone under 16 years of age at the time of starting as a volunteer. If you are under 16 years of age, please contact us as you approach your birthday to discuss our volunteering opportunities.



Volunteering at the de Havilland Aircraft Museum can be done almost any day, depending on the area of interest. However, some activities are normally limited to one or two days of the week. Our opening hours are generally between 1000 and 1700 and your volunteering activity would take place within these hours (but not for the entire time). We are very flexible regarding the number of hours per day and/or how often (once per week, every other week, etc) you wish to volunteer.

Please apply, indicating which area(s) you are interested in and we'll get back to you with the details of the specific activity we can offer.
