Community Volunteering

New! Our latest Volunteering Opportunity is with the Bradford Kaims Wetland Heritage Research Project

The Bamburgh Research Project believes that community involvement is essential to the work that we do.

For many years, we have been fortunate enough to work in the Bamburgh community. Developing community participation opportunities is important to us and we welcome volunteers. This is not to be confused with our annual field school.

Volunteers with a disability are also welcome, please get in touch and we can talk about what we can do to meet any needs you have.
Volunteers outside of the local community are welcome to contact us about other ways you can become involved with the project, and we are always open to ideas and input from members of the public.

Please note that unfortunately, we are not currently able to meet any expenses you incur through your volunteering except within the bounds of successful grant funded projects. When you start volunteering with us, we’ll let you know if this applies to you!

We are currently seeking to develop an inclusive volunteer programme that will allow anyone to become involved in the project, including participation with archive and education work, fundraising and working as an excavation guide on site. There is also the potential to take part in a small amount of fieldwork, though it should be noted that this will not be the same as participating in the training excavation. We also welcome volunteers with an interest in media work.
