Welcome to the Wikimedia UK volunteer portal! Volunteers are at the very heart of the Wikimedia projects and the global Wikimedia movement. This portal is a resource for all of our volunteers, whether you're an experienced Wikimedian or are new to the movement.

As the UK chapter of the international movement, we support and assist those who are working in a way that benefits the Wikimedia projects such as Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata and Wikinews. You'll find information about editing the projects, and our events and programmes. There are experienced Wikimedians on hand to help you so don't be nervous about asking for help.

There's a virtual library where you can download our publications, such as guides to editing and wiki mark-up, our annual reviews, and booklets about our outreach work with education and GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums).

You can subscribe to our newsletter and learn more about the charity's staff and board of trustees here. If you'd like to learn more about how to volunteer with Wikimedia UK, or learn about any aspect of the charity and its work, please email volunteer@wikimedia.org.uk.
