The BDHS has depended hugely on the work carried out by volunteers and still does, even with the recent part-time appointments for the curator and archivist. For those who work with the museum, the volunteers have regularly had training sessions. Other volunteers have researched and been responsible for publishing books. Other volunteers help out with archives and other general work.
The BDHS is always grateful for any offer to volunteer with its work. If you are interested, please contact the office address on these web pages by email, phone or post.
