What we do

Supporting volunteering in Carmarthenshire

CAVS Volunteer Centre supports voluntary work in Carmarthenshire. Through our extensive links with organisations throughout the county we are able to provide a service to individuals, who are interested in volunteering, and to organisations, who involve volunteers in their work.

The Centre’s aim is to encourage the use of volunteers and to raise standards for volunteers, service providers and service users. The service is available to all voluntary organisations in Carmarthenshire that register with the Centre and agree to work towards a Code of Good Practice. We help organisations to develop policies, and provide information from our extensive library of resources about all issues relating to the management of volunteers.

Help for voluntary and community organisations

Voluntary and community organisations register with the Centre and inform us of their current volunteering vacancies. These are then matched to potential volunteers, who are also taken through a registration process to find out what their interests and skills are. We publish a quarterly newsletter to keep all groups registered with us, and other contacts, informed of current news and issues.

Help for volunteers

We have literally hundreds of voluntary opportunities that are looking for volunteers. The opportunities cover a whole range of activities and we will do our best to find something that suits your needs. So whatever you’re interested in, wherever you live, whatever your skills, give us a call and let us help you. We publish a quarterly newsletter for volunteers registered with us, to keep them up to date with volunteering news and opportunities.

We display details of all our current volunteering opportunities on the Volunteering Wales website www.volunteering-wales.net.
