Volunteering - Getting involved

Volunteering is a great way of helping the Royal

The Royal benefits immensely from the time and expertise that volunteers bring. Whether it's a few hours on a small project to ongoing assistance, there will be something for everyone.

Current volunteering opportunities are listed below. If you have a project in mind, and it is not listed below, please contact the relevant department about ways of working.

Please note, some of the projects may be restricted to philatelists or members of the Society, due to subject specialisms.

Interested in a University placement?

University students on a museum/library/archives course who wish to base their university placement at the RPSL should contact the Museum Curator on museumarchives@rpsl.org.uk or the Librarian on librarian@rpsl.org.uk.
