Ystradgynlais Volunteer Centre
The core function of the Volunteer Centre is to find placements for volunteers within the local community. Their recruitment, training, placement and support aims to match volunteers' skills to clients' needs where possible.
Ystradgynlais Volunteer Centre has an Equal Opportunities approach to volunteering and everybody is welcome to apply, restrictions only being in place where work with children or vulnerable adults would require a police check. Those wishing to volunteer need to complete a form available from the Volunteer Centre at the Old Remploy Site, Wind Road, Glanrhyd, Ystradgynlais and have an interview with a member of staff who will ascertain their skills and needs. They will look to see whether there are projects run by the YVC that you can volunteer with, or whether to signpost you to another organisation which, for example, would work directly with animals.
All volunteers sign a Code of Practice agreeing to abide by the rules of the Volunteer Centre, and receive induction, and the opportunity for relevant training.
