Volunteers FAQ:

How long is each shift?   Each Design House shift is 4 hours.


Can I work double shifts?   Yes, you can either work a double on one day or work several shifts on different days. You know yourself best and can gauge which works for you.


Can I change the start and end times of my shift slightly?   Sorry, but no. The schedules show the minimum coverage we need for each shift and we need to assure coverage, as the shifts are interdependent.


Do volunteers tour the Design House for free?   Yes, on the day you volunteer. However, other visits require a ticket.
