Volunteering At Discover DeCrypt

Discover DeCrypt is a community project. Our volunteers are valued members of the team. We hope that everybody volunteering with us enjoys the experience; we certainly enjoy working with them. Together we share our skills, enthusiasm and passion for these beautiful buildings and their place both in the history of Gloucester and in todays community.

Volunteering is for Everyone! Our friendly team welcomes new volunteers from all backgrounds. Anybody aged 18 and over is welcome. If you are under 18, you will need the consent of a parent or guardian

  • Photography
  • Historical research
  • Market research and publicity
  • Stewarding at events
  • Family activities and workshops
  • Blogging
  • Gardening

We are flexible about hours. Some volunteers are able to commit to a regular morning or afternoon once a week, others come in once a month, or just occasionally. We are open at weekends and many events take place in the evenings, so there will be a slot for you, whatever your schedule.

We try to make sure that volunteering with us is a positive, fulfilling experience. People come to volunteering for different reasons. Whatever your reason is, tell us about it and well try to provide what you are looking for. Here are a few reasons volunteers join us:

  • to share a passion for history and heritage
  • to meet people
  • to make new friends
  • to share skills
  • to give something to the community
  • to get work experience
  • to do something useful
  • to learn new skills
  • to have fun
