IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE SERVICE AT VCS CARDIFF AFTER THE EASTER BREAK
The VCS Drop In service at Brunel House will be open this week on Tuesday (31st March) and Wednesday (1st April) from 1.00pm to 4pm; and on Thursday (2nd March) from 10am – 1pm).
We will be closed on Good Friday and Easter Monday, and from Tuesday 7th April the service will be delivered in a new format. We will no longer run a drop in a Brunel House, but will instead move to an ‘appointments-based’ service and a weekly Volunteering Hub which will take place each week in different parts of Cardiff. We have made these changes due to a reduction in our funding, but also to best meet the changing needs of the City with the resources we have available. We will be out & about in the Neighbourhood Hubs, Community Centres; Schools & Colleges and Community Events, and will be updating the website regularly with information about where you can find us each week.
VCS CARDIFF offers advice & information for people interested in volunteering.
There are 3 ways to access our service:-
- By making an appointment to see a Volunteer Advisor
- By attending one of weekly Volunteering Hub sessions held around the City
- By searching our Volunteering Wales database online
Appointments can be booked by phone on 029 2022 7625 or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of the team will respond with information about the slots available (these vary from week to week depending on our outreach schedule).
We are located in Cardiff City Centre on the Ground Floor of Brunel House, 2 Fitzalan Road, Cardiff CF24 0EB – close to Queen Street Railway Station.
**Please note we no longer operate a Drop In service at Brunel House
2. Volunteering Hub Sessions
Volunteering Hub Sessions are held each week somewhere in Cardiff – we go to Neighbourhood Hubs, Libraries, Community Centres and even shops. The times and locations change every week so we can make the service accessible to people with different availabilties, and we aim to move around all areas of the City. Details are published on the website at the start of each month.
VCS Cardiff opportunities can be found online at the Volunteering Wales database. You can search for available volunteering roles by entering your postcode and giving the distance from your home you are prepared to travel. You can use the Advanced Search option to define what type of volunteering you are interested in. To access the Volunteering Wales database, click on the link below:-
