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 availabilities, 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:-
