Volunteering Opportunities


As part of our National Lottery Heritage Funded Activity Plan, we are looking to recruit new volunteers who would be interested in contributing to our Learning and Community Programme.


We are looking for volunteers who would be happy to help with setting up, assisting and possibly delivering workshops and activities to schools and families as well as people who are happy to talk to and interact with different community groups in the museum or as an ambassador of Leighton House Museum within the wider community. These roles would be on an ad hoc basis.


Please download the form below for further information. An induction and training will be given to all volunteers as well as travel expenses.




Please contact Tracey Lazarus at tracey.lazarus@rbkc.gov.uk if you are interested.



18 Stafford Terrace needs volunteer room guides when there is Open Access to the public on a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon between 2 to 5.30pm.


18 Stafford Terrace is closed to the public over the summer (June to September) for conservation and housekeeping. Volunteers are needed over the summer period every Tuesday to help with the conservation cleaning.


We also sometimes have other roles available for volunteers such as research and administrative roles which will be advertised on the website.
