The Changemakers project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, ran in 2021 and 2022 and gave young people in Fenland new, flexible ways to get involved in volunteering at Fenland’s Museums 

Young volunteers researched local museum collections to tell stories inspired by Fenland’s great historic social reformers and rebels. Volunteers helped the museums to find new ways to share these stories and the museums supported young volunteers to gain new skills

Museums involved in this project were:

  • Chatteris Museum
  • Ramsey Rural Museum
  • Thorney Museum
  • Whittlesey Museum
  • Wisbech and Fenland Museum

Working with Young Volunteers

As part of the project we created a package of example policies and support information which can be downloaded below.
