Information for Organisations
How we can help you
The Volunteer Centre can provide:-
Information, advice and guidance on all aspects of volunteering for both volunteers and recruiting organisations.
We can recruit volunteers for you if you are a not for profit organisation or a registered charity. We just ask that you complete our registration form to provide us with information about your organisation and a description of what voluntary opportunities that you have we will then be able to advertise your opportunities through the Volunteer Centre and www.volunteering-wales.net
The Volunteer Centre do not vet potential volunteers and do not take up references or Criminal Record Checks. Organisations need to have relevant insurance in place for their volunteers.
