Perpetuating the memory of one of the greatest men of the Victorian age


We have a committed and enthusiastic body of both regular and occasional volunteers who assist with all aspects of the Society from administrative support to events organisation, marketing to front-of-house duties at our riverside museum in Hammersmith. Most roles would suit someone London-based although opportunities do occasionally arise for people to volunteer remotely.

We are particularly keen on hearing from people with the following interests and experience:

  • Education programme: We have a well-developed children’s education programme that we would value your assistance in delivering to children from local schools. Experience of working with children is desirable but not essential.
  • Heritage buildings expertise: as part of our current development project we would be very keen to hear from anyone with experience of planning, listed building consent etc.
  • IT: general computing experience is very welcome, particularly ad-hoc support – this might suit someone who does not live locally but could would be willing to advise us by phone or email.
