Volunteering with Heritage Lincolnshire is a fantastic way to gain new skills, experience and knowledge, discover more about your local area, meet new people and, above all, enjoy yourself!

“Volunteering for the Trust makes you appreciate what Lincolnshire has to offer”

Heritage Lincolnshire is committed to offering high quality volunteering opportunities; in February 2020 the Trust was awarded the Investing in Volunteers standard, a nationally recognised benchmark for best practice for organisations that involve volunteers in their work. Renewed every 3 years, the Trust is keen to constantly improve their volunteering offer and in 2016 appointed a Volunteer Lead to support ongoing development.



The input and support of our large body of dedicated volunteers is crucial to much of what we do. Since the Trust was established in 1988 we have raised over £25 million of project funding and delivered a range of successful heritage projects, all of which have benefited greatly from volunteer input.


We offer a variety of roles to suit all ages, abilities and backgrounds; training and support is provided by our staff members. Volunteer opportunities are flexible; we offer long term, short term and one-off roles. Have a look at our volunteer leaflet to see the types of roles we can offer.

Our community heritage projects generate many different volunteering opportunities; from the members of our project steering groups to the people who get involved in project activities and events, carry out heritage surveys, or take part in community excavations. Take a look at our projects page  to find out more.
