Free UK Genealogy is a volunteer-led community; we have around 6500 active volunteers working across the three projects. They are managed by a team of volunteers (we also have volunteer trustees), just under 3 full time equivalent paid staff, and a small number of contractors. Project-specific opportunities range from transcribing to coordinating teams, to overall management.
We recognise that volunteers contribute in many ways, that your contribution is unique and that volunteering can benefit users, staff, communities, and you.
We value the contribution made by volunteers and are committed to involving you in appropriate positions and in ways which are encouraging, supportive and which develop personal and organisational growth.
We recognise our responsibility to arrange our volunteering efficiently and sensitively so that the valuable gift of your time is best used to the mutual advantage of all concerned.
