It also includes an education programme for schools, reading groups in libraries, opportunities for volunteering, and mentoring and skill sharing between partners.

The post holder’s role is to support the freelance Project Manager to develop and deliver this project during 2014-16. They will also work closely with the Museums Norfolk Development Manager and Museums Norfolk Committee.
