Volunteering with The Arts Society

Our volunteers offer their time and energy to help us preserve and celebrate the arts. But you also get something back from volunteering – you’ll make new friends, learn new skills, and you can enjoy knowing you are making a huge difference. 

Our Societies are run entirely by volunteers; a massive achievement by our members. Most Societies also have teams of volunteers who focus on the following areas of work in their local community:

Young Arts volunteers fundraise and give grants to arts projects for children and young people in their local area. In a time of cuts and changes to the national curriculum, this has never been more important...

Our Church Recording volunteers have been carefully recording the contents of churches for more than 45 years.

From the conservation of books to projects in historic parks and gardens, our Heritage Volunteers are busy all over the UK helping to conserve and protect the nation’s heritage...

For children, discovering a place of worship, an historic building or town through art, artefacts and social history can be inspiring. Trails for people living with dementia have been designed to evoke memories and prompt conversation with family or carers.
We are pleased that Trails of Discovery is working with The National Churches Trust to have our Trails linked to their ExploreChurches website. This will give the opportunity for people visiting churches listed to download and enjoy our Trails. Their website may be found at www.explorechurches.org
