Volunteering Opportunities

Throughout the pandemic, we recruited and worked with a fantastic team of volunteers. They have been a great addition to the team and we have enjoyed meeting in person now that it is safe to do so. Our volunteers have helped to support the following tasks:

  • Transcription for future displays
  • Audio Description Testing to improve learning experience for all audiences
  • Assisting with the production of online resources for schools
  • Entomology Inventory
  • Assisting with our Lunar Watch evenings

Delaney Thomson, a University of Glasgow student and volunteer for Paisley Museum Reimagined, describes the benefits of this experience for her professional development and career:

“Volunteering for Paisley Museum Reimagined has been a key step to furthering my professional development in the museum sector. I have gained many skills and knowledge that are incredibly useful, and that will be applicable to my career in the cultural heritage sector. I’m so grateful to PMR for this fantastic experience!”

We are delighted to say that several of our volunteers have received their Saltire Award because of their work with Paisley Museum Reimagined. As the project develops, we look forward to offering new and exciting volunteering opportunities for local people of all ages and backgrounds to access. Volunteers are also given pathways to develop their learning within OneRen and Renfrewshire Council.
