Northern Museums Volunteer Pass 2017-19

Museum Development North West, Museum Development Yorkshire and Museum Development North East are running the Northern Volunteer Pass again and we are looking for museums to participate in the scheme.

  • What is it?
    • One of the largest Volunteer schemes in England:
      • over 150 participating institutions
      • over 6,000 participating volunteers
    • Allows your volunteers to gain various benefits at other participating museums
    • Open to ALL accredited museums, or those working towards accreditation, in the North East, North West and Yorkshire and Humberside Museum Development regions.
  • What’s the benefit to your museum?
    • Raises awareness of your museum. As one museum said “[the passes] market what’s on offer to future possible visitors” and another “[the pass] helps promote the region as a whole”.
    • Learning Opportunities. Museums said the benefits were::
      • “Opportunity to see other museums. Can pick up and bring back ideas”.
      • “A chance to appreciate what other museums are doing and generate new ideas”
      • “Way to keep up with what others are doing and reflect on our services”
    • Networking and Benchmarking. Museums said the benefits were:
      • to build understanding and make relationships to other museums. To see and learn from what other organisations are delivering. To be able to bench mark against what we deliver, and what we could deliver.”
      • “Being part of a museum community”
