Could You Volunteer For CAFOD Hallam?

If you care about global poverty, can work with children and young people and are able to travel to schools and parishes in your local area, you may want to think about signing up as a volunteer.
As part of your role, you will be required to deliver a short presentation on an aspect of our work.
You don’t need to be an expert or a trained teacher and CAFOD offers our volunteers a full training programme, ongoing support and a wide range of exciting materials and resources to get you up and running.
CAFOD representative in Hallam, Jeremy Cain, said: “This is a brilliant opportunity and we are a very friendly bunch at CAFOD!
“All the support you need will be put in place and we have already had a number of volunteers thrive in their roles with us.”
