Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community. Volunteering can help you:

1. Get that job you want

It’s hard to get a job without experience, and qualifications alone are not always good enough. As a volunteer you will gain valuable experience, build your confidence and take part in training to improve your skills and knowledge. We will even give you a reference when you want to move on!

2. Make new friends

If you’re not in paid work it can be hard to get out and about and make new friends. Volunteers work side by side with our paid staff and other volunteers so making new friends is easy.

3. Be a part of your community

We all want to feel valued, and by volunteering with us you will really feel a part of the community in which you live.

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.

How much time do I need to give?

Age Cymru West Glamorgan understands that people’s lives are full and finding time to volunteer can be difficult. That is why our volunteering opportunities are flexible and can fit around busy lives allowing you to dip in and out of volunteering when it suits you. Some people give an hour a week, other people do more.
