After three months of hard work on an extensive redevelopment the museum has been completely transformed. It now has two spacious galleries to display over 1200 glass exhibits. It is quite a task for the two part-time staff to run the museum. Therefore, a volunteer scheme has been launched and immediate applications are being invited.

Information for applicants can be found in the Volunteers section of this web site. There is information on how to volunteer, what the role entails, and the support we provide to volunteers.

The first volunteers meetup will be on Wednesday, 23rd May 2018 at 2 pm. The meeting will last about an hour.

Our aim is build a community of volunteers where we all support one another. We will use a 'buddy' system where volunteers work in pairs when possible for mutual support.

We expect most volunteers to be Island residents, but if you live elsewhere we won't turn you away if you can find local accommodation. We want to be as inclusive as possible and will accept applications from all ages and backgrounds. Your individual circumstances will be discussed in confidence with the Volunteers Coordinator, Anna Appleton.

The volunteer scheme is being guided by the local organization Community Action Isle of Wight. We attempt to follow their policies, governance and legal structures as appropriate for the museum.

We look forward to working with you.
