Volunteer with Ross CDT

Volunteer Roles

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, make new friends and develop your social skills. More importantly, volunteering allows you to connect with the community and make it a better place. Ross-on-Wye Community Development Trust is always looking for volunteers to join its friendly team, which aims to help the vulnerable and isolated in and around Ross-on-Wye.

We are looking for a wide variety of volunteers to help support our clients and the charity, and we have a number of volunteer roles available. Training is provided. Please read on to see what roles we have available.

If you can give any time and any of these roles appeal to you, please apply to volunteer via the button below.

Face to Face Client Support Roles
