As the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education, volunteers are at the heart of everything we do, and have been since the WEA was founded in 1903.
Volunteers run many of our local branches and without them we wouldn’t be able to provide such an extensive adult education programme.
In addition, the WEA is governed at a national and regional level by volunteer Trustees and committee members who provide a wealth of knowledge and interest in lifelong learning.
At present, we have over 1,000 volunteers actively involved in our work.
If you would like to join them, there’s all kinds of ways you can get involved. From helping to arrange and promote local courses or events to a range of administration tasks or even joining a regional committee.
You can find out more by reading the volunteer profiles on the national WEA website or please feel free to contact us for an informal chat.
