There are over 300 volunteers involved with us here at The Historic Dockyard Chatham donating over 35,000 hours of their valuable time each year. Caring for the many historic buildings and artefacts, three historic warships and over 170,000 visitors each year means that there are plenty of different roles for volunteers to fill! The Trust is supported by a number of volunteer groups whose activities range from restoring and running the dockyard’s steam railway to carrying out historical research to supporting film crews using the site for the latest large productions.
Volunteers have a huge impact on the work that is done on site and we would not have achieved all we have over the past 30+ years without the significant input of our volunteer team.
Volunteering opportunities at The Historic Dockyard Chatham are varied and can range from hands-on roles, office/desk based support through to research activities in the Dockyard Library and even getting involved in the operation of our Historic Railway.
