Contribution made by volunteers

We greatly value the contribution made by volunteers to the success of the organisation.  Volunteering has been an integral part of Community Counselling long before the term 'Big Society' was termed.  A significant proportion of client sessions are now delivered by volunteers. Our volunteers include qualified counsellors who are working towards professional accreditation. Additionally, the good administration of the service is dependent on volunteering. 

The reasons why people volunteer are many, including a desire to 'give something back', to complete the practical element of a training course and to gain new skills and experience - and the confidence - to re-enter (or to enter for the first time) the workplace.  Contact us if you are interested in volunteering or fundraising for Community Counselling or contact CAVCA to find out more about a wide range of other volunteering opportunities.
