How you can help
The Buildings at Risk project provides a uniquely flexible volunteering opportunity.
No prior knowledge or experience of historic buildings is required – just an inquisitive nature and enthusiasm to explore!
There is a 30-minute training module to complete before joining the project to ensure that every volunteer, whether novice or enthusiast, has a consistent approach. It is then up to you whether you dip-in while waiting for a bus, or structure a full day of exploring with friends. This project is an opportunity for us to build a community of volunteers; people like you who are interested in the historic landscape of the West Midlands and passionate about preserving for future generations.
There are so many buildings to survey, we are looking for as many volunteers as possible. Whether you only survey one building or one hundred, all contributions are important. Each survey takes less than 5 minutes, so you’ll be able to fit them around your day – whenever and wherever you like; there are historic buildings everywhere!
You can sign up to become a volunteer in 4 easy steps. Follow the steps to complete your online training module and then we can add you straight to the live project. It takes around 30 minutes to sign up.
All our volunteers are immensely important to us and make this project achievable.
