Volunteering at CCA

Whether young or old, in or out of work, you could help serve the people of Reading in many practical ways.
Just a few hours a week can make a huge difference, easing the workload on our personnel and reaching out to people in your local community.

We need volunteers to help serve in the shops, to train as assessors in the Support Centres. Van drivers and able-bodied crew members are needed to collect and deliver furniture.

The following skills are always needed:

Administration, IT, painting, decorating, plumbing, electrical work, Public Relations and Human Resources.

Would you be prepared to offer your time on an ad hoc basis as and when needed?

Board of Trustees: Have you ever considered becoming a Trustee? Do you have skills you could offer to the board: finance, business management, HR, IT, retail law?

Thank you to all our volunteers. You are the ones who make it possible for us to help people in need, in and around Reading.
