Aim of volunteering

Volunteers are essential to the running of our organisation and help our organisation to thrive, from front of house duties, to display, helping our visitors to better understand craft, to selling craft, the role is varied and rewarding.
As a Volunteer you would usually commit 2-4 days a month, on a monthly rota system, though we are happy to fit any days that you can offer around your commitments and available time. We particularly welcome applications from Welsh speakers and from all backgrounds and abilities.

Cardiff Volunteer Centre
The Cardiff Volunteer Centre @ C3SC (Cardiff Third Sector Council) is run by the community, for the community. The Centre acts as a central hub where anyone in Cardiff can find out about volunteering opportunities. We help people who want to volunteer and organisations recruiting volunteers to find the right opportunities. C3SC is here to help you volunteer in your local community. We have hundreds of different volunteering opportunities with charities, community groups and statutory organisations across the capital. If you want to give back whilst being part of a movement to make a difference then we’re here to help.

A long history of Volunteering...
Originally created as a maker co-operative back in 1984, we still maintain a strong co-operative ethos, with a focus on fairness, emphasising equality and sustainability. We still retain the strong co-operative ethos and maintain strong ethical values today.
Co-operative working along with an emphasis on Volunteering are core to our organisation, we recognise and value the special work volunteers do in our community. These are two pillars on which our organisation operates with and values.
