Accessible heritage sites for all

Volunteer with us

We believe that disabled and Deaf people should lead the process of change and decide what improvements are needed

We are a user-led organisation and we want to recruit disabled and Deaf people across the South West to volunteer and help us make these changes. Volunteers can take many roles, including:

  • Mystery visitors to assess heritage sites and advise on the improvements they can make
  • BSL (British Sign Language) film guides to learn about a site's heritage and create a film clip
  • BSL tour guides to learn about a site's heritage and lead guided tours for Deaf people
  • Heritage Ability Champions to support their local heritage places and help it on its journey to become more accessible, engaging with local disabled and Deaf people and groups
  • Joining a User-led panels, which meet occasionally to look at how the project is going and how well it is tackling specific disability and access needs
