This opportunity is provided by Innovate Trust, a Welsh Charity which supports people with learning disabilities to lead fulfilled lives at home and in the community.
The Secret Garden is a horticulture and history project based at St Fagans National Museum of History. The project supports people with learning disabilities to research the history of Ysgubor Fawr cottage and garden which sits within the grounds of the museum, and was once part of the original Plymouth Estate.
We are on the lookout for community volunteers to help support people with learning disabilities to research Ysgubor Fawr using the fascinating records held within St Fagans’ archives as well as the Glamorgan Archives. The research gathered will be developed into exhibition materials, with the exhibition itself planned for 2024.
This role is perfect from someone who has some interest in history and enjoys working with others!
We also offer Gardening Volunteer roles linked to the Secret Garden project which you can find here: The Secret Garden - Gardening Volunteer
You can combine these two roles if you wish.
