This is a bespoke service, so please contact the CAS Volunteering Team at email@example.com or 01473 345400 and we will work with you to achieve your individual aims.
Contact the charity directly
Do you already know the charity that you would like to volunteer for?
Many people have a charity that has helped someone in the family, have used their services or just feel a really strong pull towards their aims and ethos.
If this is the case, go straight to their website and look under their volunteering section or the ‘How can you help’ section.
If you are finding it hard to find a contact, get in touch with the CAS Volunteering Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01473 345400 and they will try and help you find the right person.
