Share your time and talents to help build a more equal Wales.

Volunteering can be an opportunity to engage or re-engage with the world of work, to learn new skills or refresh existing ones, to gain confidence or just to try something new. We are keen to recruit from groups that are currently or consistently under-represented in the not-for-profit sector and aim to provide a safe and encouraging environment for people facing additional barriers to becoming volunteers.

If you’d like to get involved in volunteering with us, we’d love to hear from you. Please email us at

We will ask you to complete an Equal opportunities form upon application. Diverse Cymru uses this information, completely separate from any personal information, to ensure that our volunteering opportunities are reaching a diverse group of potential volunteers.

We will only keep the information from these forms for a maximum of 12 months and will not reveal it to any other organisation except under our statutory obligations.

Volunteering should not affect your benefits if the only money you receive is to cover expenses, such as travel.

There are usually no limits on the amount of time you can spend volunteering, as long as you continue to meet the conditions of the benefit or tax credit you are receiving.

However we recommend checking with your local authority or benefits adviser before taking up a voluntary post.
