Volunteer Your Time
Almost everything that happens in Caerphilly Miners Centre is the result of volunteer effort. We offer a wide range of volunteering opportunities to suit all needs and abilities. Volunteers are trustees and keyholders, they help manage our finances and with marketing, run the café, contribute to event planning, and support a range of projects, such as our Youth Forum, Stay and Play, language classes, gardening, musical activities, arts and crafts, and our Elderberries.
Yasmin Morris is responsible for registering volunteers and keeping records of time donated. We run a Time Bank where credits are given for each hour donated. In 2016-17 there were over 50 volunteers donating over 5,000 hours of volunteer time. Everyone can help – for example, our youngest volunteers earn time bank credits by putting the Stay and Play Group’s toys away, whilst older volunteers knit rectangles for the blankets we donate to needy families within the community.
We are committed to supporting and encouraging volunteering throughout our organisation and to ensuring that it is rewarding and fulfilling for individuals. This may include providing training, the satisfaction of being part of a team, and acknowledging people’s unique contribution to our project.
