In April 2021 #HeritageChat focused on ‘The Future of Volunteering‘, an vital topic for many organisations in the heritage sector. This topic was suggested by Michelle Cook, a young professional, who helped us lead the chat. 

Participants shared thoughts on: the current and future challenges for heritage volunteering; how to sustain it now and in future, making it more beneficial, fair and inclusive; volunteering as learning opportunity; how to improve the connection between local communities and heritage sites/museums through volunteering.
