Cultural Connections Volunteering

About Cultural Connections Volunteering

Cultural Connections is a NEW project promoting volunteering in the arts, heritage and cultural sector. We've just added a few events and activities but there are plenty more to come!!!

It's an easy and fun way to get into volunteering for residents of Great Yarmouth and East Suffolk. You can volunteer at exciting arts, heritage and cultural events and activities, including festivals. Volunteer as little or as much as you like and choose the kind of volunteering that works for you, including online volunteering . If you’ve never volunteered before, or you think it might be difficult for you, we’ll support you every step of the way. You'll meet new people, learn new skills, build confidence, and even earn rewards.
