Become a Volunteer

Volunteering with Manchester Histories offers a unique opportunity to gain experience of working in events, to learn about the history of Greater Manchester, to learn new skills, have fun and meet other people in the process. If you have a passion for history or a keen interest in organising events or being involved in projects, we would welcome your support. We are looking for volunteers with experience in the following areas.

  • Helping to research histories for our partners
  • Event management and/or production
  • Marketing and public relations
  • Stewarding and welcome hosting at our events and festival
  • Administration and office support
  • Evaluation

All our volunteers have to be over 18 years old, and following induction training, you will be asked to sign a Volunteer Agreement.

Please see our Volunteer Handbook here with more details about Manchester Histories and how volunteers form a vital part of our work.

If you would like to join our team of volunteers then you should first of all fill out the application form below.

This asks for some basic details about yourself, your skills, interests, the time you feel able to commit to Manchester Histories and what you hope to get out of being one of our volunteers. We look forward to hearing from you.
