Dr Johnson’s House has a dedicated team of volunteers who provide invaluable support to our two members of staff, aiding the smooth running of the house.
Volunteering can be a great way to meet new people and gain behind-the-scenes experience in a small historic house, and we recurit people of all ages and backgrounds to join our friendly volunteer team.
Read the blogs of former office volunteers, who discuss their experience of volunteering at Dr Johnson's House:

Owing to the small size of the organisation, please note that no travel expenses can be offered and no employment opportunities are available at the end of the period.
We are currently recruiting for a number of voluntary roles, please use the 'contact us' link to the left to ask for more information....
