CAFAG and your Community Centre needs you!

You get to meet lots of nice people and get a lot of satisfaction helping people

Volunteers are at the very heart of everything that we do at CAFAG. Without our volunteers CAFAG simply could not provide the range and quality of activities that we do. Whether you have the time to volunteer on a regular or occasional basis we'd love to hear from you! 


Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, gain skills, take an active part in your community and could lead to employment. It is also a way of giving something back and of making a huge difference to your community.


Our activities and services are built on local people and what they need. We want you to be happy here and get the most out of your volunteering experience and we want volunteers to feel valued and cared for.


We welcome the support of volunteers of all ages, but in most circumstances volunteers will need to be over 18 years old. Some volunteering roles will also require a Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check.

CAFAG are looking for new members to join our Board of Trustees. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the future direction and strategic development of a local charity.
