CAVO VOLUNTEER CENTRE – What we do
Supporting volunteering in Ceredigion
CAVO Volunteer Centre supports voluntary work in Ceredigion. Through working closely with organisations throughout the county we are able to provide a service to individuals, who are interested in volunteering, and to organisations, who involve volunteers in their work.
The Centre’s aim is to encourage the use of volunteers and to raise standards for volunteers, service providers and service users. The service is available to all voluntary organisations in Ceredigion that register with the Centre and work towards best practice. We help organisations to develop policies, and provide information about all issues relating to the management of volunteers.
Help for voluntary and community organisations
Voluntary and community organisations register with the Centre and inform us of their current volunteering opportunities. These are then matched to potential volunteers, who are also taken through a registration process to find out what their interests and skills are.
Help for volunteers
We have over 200 organisation registered that are looking for volunteers. The opportunities cover a whole range of activities. So whatever you’re interested in, wherever you live, whatever your skills, please contact us and let us help you. We hold regular outreach and volunteering events around Ceredigion to enable volunteers to discuss their interest and see the variety of opportunities available.
We also display details of all our current volunteering opportunities on the Volunteering Wales website www.volunteering-wales.net.

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) is the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK – it’s the equivalent of an MBE.
You could be eligible for a payment, of up to £250 to help you into work, education or volunteering.

I work for a TV company called Cwmni Da, which is based in Caernarfon. We are currently working on the second series of Corau Rhys Meirion. The series will look at the beneficial effects of choral singing/being part of a choir on an individual’s general well-being and health. For one episode we are hoping to form a choir of deaf people to come together to sign, sing and share their stories. I’m contacting to see if it would be possible to circulate our project among your service users please? We hope our projects might be a beneficial venture for all involved.
As this programme will be shown on S4C, we are looking for the majority of the participants to be fluent Welsh speakers.
We aim to film in September/October and the series will be broadcasted on S4C at the beginning of 2020.
