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 Cinnamon Trust needs volunteers in Ceredigion
The Cinnamon Trust is the national charity whose wonderful volunteers help people over retirement age and those in the latter stages of a terminal illness by offering all kinds of pet care. We urgently need dog walking volunteers to help local residents and their adorable dogs who would love to go for a good walk. If you would like to help we would be delighted to hear from you.
What happens if illness, injury or just the fact that we all get older eventually affects our ability to look after our four legged companions? A large number of elderly or ill pet owners become very worried about their ability to care for their pets, feeling that their only option is to rehome them, this is where our national network of dedicated volunteers step in to offer support enabling them to stay together.
We’ll walk the dog for a housebound owner, we’ll foster pets when owners need hospital care, we’ll fetch the cat food, even clean out the bird cage or litter trays.
We always need new volunteers so even if you can only spare an hour a week we would love to hear from you.
Please call during office hours 01736 758707 or email us at email@example.com or check out our website for more details www.cinnamon.org.uk
