Volunteering Opportunity

Posted: 3rd November 2015

Can you offer your skills and time to help us transcribe a series of interviews for our oral histories project? This is a one-off volunteering opportunity and you can take on a finite amount of work to suit you.

We have been interviewing people with a connection to Moat Brae and they have told us their stories of working at the house when it was a nursing home, or their reminiscences of it as a significant place in their childhood.

Some of our interviewers have been able to transcribe the stories themselves but others could benefit from a little help and some typing skills!

This project is run in collaboration with European Ethnological Research Centre at Edinburgh University and the resulting stories will be included in publications, events and an archive.

If you think you may be able to help please get in touch and we can tell you more about what’s involved.

Please email  giving your name, email and phone number and a brief description of your typing experience and we’ll be in touch soon.
