With over 30,000 people working and living on the Mile (not including the many former employees and residents!), everyone has a link to the area - and we want to hear yours. Whether it’s memories from grandparents or parents, or your favourite moment on the Maritime Mile.
We love organising community days for local people to come down and learn about the area, but also share their memories and experiences. We have learnt so much from former shipyard employees and their families, local residents, and people who love visiting the area and sharing their favourite moment on the Maritime Mile.
We also have a volunteer scheme you can join – Heritage Helpers. We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic & reliable people to become volunteers and are designing diverse and exciting opportunities which offers volunteers the chance to improve confidence & wellbeing, as well as having some fun.
At the moment we are limited in what we can organise due to the Covid-19 pandemic but keep an eye on this area for our upcoming community initiatives.
“I have been volunteering for just under a year and really enjoyed my time. The Titanic team made me feel welcome from day one. I really enjoy that the volunteering opportunities are varied and flexible. It’s been fun meeting new people and showing them around the amazing Titanic Quarter. I would recommend volunteering even for a few hours a month”.
