CARAD volunteers with flagsCARAD is a community owned charity run by volunteers for the benefit of local people and visitors.

We believe arts and heritage belong together. Local people created this charity for our community - to use the arts to communicate, record and celebrate their heritage and stories.

Our modern, accredited, independent Museum takes care of the objects and records the stories which make us who we are today.

We offer opportunities for all to get involved

There are volunteer roles to suit many interests, and abilities. You may have skills to offer that we haven’t listed below!
