Volunteer with Bawdsey Radar

We’re always on the lookout for volunteers, whether you can give a few hours a month as a guide, helping in the shop, or using a computer to update our records.

You don’t need to have any particular expertise or knowledge of Bawdsey Radar in order to volunteer. We’ll provide full training and it can be a great way to make new friends. If you do know about the site, so much the better, we’d love to hear about your experiences too.
