Volunteering - History and heritage
Find new ways to enjoy and protect Dorset's beautiful landscape and heritage by volunteering.
Volunteers work regularly with Dorset Council's historic environment team. Some do it just for fun while others are looking for work experience. Find out more about working with the team, and tell us about what kinds of you would like to do by completing our volunteer enquiry form. As well as general volunteering opportunities, you might be interested in being a local Heritage Champion or coming along to the Dorset Historic Environment Record forum.
