volunteers needed

Derby Signfest needs you!


We are looking for dedicated volunteers aged 18+ to help us during Derby Signfest, a NEW week long festival happening in Derby 9th – 15th September 2019, celebrating Sign Language and shouting about the rich Deaf history. Working in partnership with Communication Unlimited, Derby Theatre and Royal School for the Deaf Derby, with support from British Deaf Association, Derby City Council, Quad & This is Derby.

The week is jam packed full of exciting activities, including films, sports, theatre, history, guided walks & tours, social events, family fun day and much more!

We are looking for Deaf and hearing volunteers with some signing skills, but please apply even if you don’t sign as we will provide training on Deaf awareness. Volunteers will undergo certain training and obtain a volunteer passport with the relevant skills they require for their role in the week, which will look excellent on your CV.

There is many different ways we need volunteers to help, such as; people to help signpost the public on where to go and what’s on, to help out on shows and tours, to help at the history museum, to set up and clear away and many more opportunities to get involved.


If the festival interests you and you think you can spare a minimum of 8 hours throughout the week then that’s fantastic. Please email us at derbysignfest@hotmail.com 


Thank you for your interest, we look forward to working with you!
