Volunteering

Recovery Cymru simply couldn’t exist without the support and assistance of our passionate and dedicated volunteers. We are always looking out for new volunteers to join us and for new ways in which they can help Recovery Cymru function as efficiently as possible. In return, Recovery Cymru supports our volunteers with all necessary training and shadowing opportunities and regular supervision sessions. Many of our volunteers are members who wanted to become more involved with Recovery Cymru’s organisation and several former volunteers have gone on to find paid employment within Recovery Cymru or our associate organisations.

Some of the roles we can offer volunteers;

Group Facilitation

Recovery Cymru offers our members a variety of groups and courses to support them in their ongoing recovery. We are always seeking dedicated and reliable candidates to assist and run these activities. Volunteers will receive the necessary training and support in these roles.

Administration and Centre Support

First impressions count and our volunteers are key to offering a reassuring welcome, both in our receptions and over the telephone, to people who are in early recovery and feeling particularly nervous or vulnerable. Many of our members cite the warm welcome they received on first visiting Recovery Cymru as the reason for their return and the subsequent maintenance of their recovery.

Recovery Coaching and Training

 Recovery Coaches are peers who can assist and support members along their recovery. This then is a role that would suit volunteers who have lived experience of substance misuse and recovery. Recovery Cymru will provide all necessary training and each coach will be matched with one of our members who is seeking additional support in their recovery.

Fundraising

Fundraising is not only vital to Recovery Cymru’s operations, it’s also a great way of involving our members and volunteers in our community. We’re always on the lookout for fun, innovative fundraising ideas and also for volunteers to help organise our fundraising activities, whether it’s shaking collection buckets or writing and delivering thank-you letters.
