Regional volunteering In 2019, we embarked on a restructure of our regional network of volunteer branches following a consultation with various stakeholders. The Branch network operated for over fifty years and made a huge difference to the place of science in UK society, creating many hours of pleasure for their audiences. The Branches were able to reach local groups that are typically hard to reach for a national organisation, and we are forever indebted to them. If you would like to find out more about the history of the Branches network, please visit this page. We are keen to support the Branches in their new guises and to support people looking for local volunteering opportunities. If you're interested in opportunities in your area, please see the list below of groups that were formerly Branches or that a former Branch has merged with: Bristol Science Film Festival Cornwall Science Community Curiosity Sussex Going Nova (Northern Scotland) Hampstead Scientific Society Isle of Wight Cafe Scientifique Norfolk and Norwich Science Association Northern Ireland Science Festival Orkney International Science Festival Oxford SciBar Palace of Science (Newcastle) Portsmouth Science City Richmond Scientific Society Science Aberdeen Science Devon Science in Reading Sheffield Science Outreach Yorkshire Philosophical Society Please get in touch with us at [email protected] with any questions you may have, or visit our resources page for help with your volunteer group.
