We are looking for volunteers to work with us on the Her Salisbury Story Project and are keen to attract people from the different communities in our city and surrounding countryside. If you think you might be interested and would like to know more please read the section below to find out how you can get involved.
There are several ways of getting involved with Her Salisbury Story. You may have time to help by joining our team of volunteers or you may know of someone you think we should be including in the project. Perhaps you know some information about a woman from the past or present day that would help to develop her story. Or maybe you’d just like to join our mailing list to be kept informed about events and developments. Here are the ways you can get involved:
Sign up as a volunteer
There will be lots of opportunities to help with the project. At the moment we need people to interview contemporary women, transcribe interviews, provide technical support and research historic women.
There will be further opportunities as the project moves on to the next phases.
If you would like to know more about any of these areas please download our Volunteer Information Pack for more information.
If you would like to sign up as a volunteer, please download the expressions of interest forms (below) which you can complete and email back to us
Because places are limited for the interview and research training we will be holding informal discussions with people who have expressed an interest in volunteering to ensure they are happy to make the commitment necessary and that they have the appropriate basic skills for the task.
Nominate a woman for inclusion in Her Salisbury Story
Do you know of a woman who was born or lived in Salisbury or surrounding area and has made a significant contribution to Salisbury or the wider community? Her contribution might be social, political, cultural, economic or in other ways. It may be someone from the past who is no longer with us, or it might be someone still living locally today that you would like to see celebrated as part of this exciting project.
If you know someone you think we should be including please complete the nomination form and send it back to us. We look forward to receiving your nomination!
Tell us some information about a woman we have featured
Do you know some interesting information about one of the women we have featured here on our website that would help us to write Her Salisbury Story? You may be able to help us fill in the gaps in our research and help build a complete picture of one of these inspiring women. If you have information you think we should be including please fill in our contact form. We look forward to hearing from you.
