Volunteer with us

Join our volunteers, a fantastic team of people with a passion for boats and adventure. We meet at Cremyll or on Lynher and nowadays we also volunteer remotely from home. There are many different aspects of a maritime heritage project to follow and support, please read below about the various aspects that you could help us cover whilst benefitting from being part of the our volunteers team.

Ready To Become Part Of The Team?

If you would like to be part of our dedicated team and help us share our passion for maritime heritage, then we would love to hear from you! But… There are some things you need to know before filling in the form.



We understand that everyone has a unique capacity and we ask that you work as hard as you can to help us. Our volunteering spots are very limited and we need to make the most of them.



Sadly, we can’t take everyone. We have many many applications for volunteer roles and although we would love to take everyone, we simply can’t. So if you don’t get a place with us this time, try again in the future as our needs and capacity changes on a regular basis. If you want to get more experience then consider signing up to some of our training courses too.


We want you to benefit from volunteering for us, so make sure you tell us what you need to help you improve and make your volunteering experience rewarding.

Still with us? Great! Simply fill in and submit the form below and if you are successful we will be in touch. Please try to give us as much detail as you can and good luck!

Would You Be Willing To Take Part In Training Courses/Activites As Required For Your Role?

A criminal records check is required in roles involving minors, families, vulnerable people or dealing with finance matters. If you have any concerns please ask as a record does not preclude you from volunteering in all our roles. We cannot accept applications from anyone with a record of offences against children or minors due to the nature of our working environment and client base. Do you agree to a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) if it is required by the role?

Do you have a disability or a health issue (including pregnancy) which you would like us to take into account?
