Volunteer opportunities Cambridge

I became a volunteer because I wanted to give.  The thing I didn’t realise is how much I’d get back.




There are volunteer opportunities, within CWRC, to help with projects, join our fundraising team and support our community.


If you think you have the skills or experience to help, or would like to develop your confidence through volunteering with the Centre, please do email us at info@cwrc.org.uk


For information about how to become a trustee please refer to the Governance page, under Stakeholders.





Cambridge Women’s Resources Centre (Peterborough Centre)

18 hours Support Worker

 (£21,868 gross pro-rata to a 37 hour week)


We have an exciting opportunity within The Dawn Project in our Peterborough Women’s Centre. The Dawn Project has been running for 10 years and offers a supportive environment where women aim to reduce re-offending and alternatives to custodial sentences across Cambridge and Peterborough.


As a support worker, you will be working closely with women to address barriers and effect change to reduce offending behaviours. You will have experience of working with vulnerable people and understanding of issues affecting women. It is a varied post with no two days the same.


Multi-agency working is essential and ability to communicate effectively. A knowledge of housing and benefits would be an advantage. You will also be very organised and able to use your IT skills to collect and input data. The project is based in Women's Centres.


We would consider applications for a job share split or whole post.


This post is restricted to women only under the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 sections 7 (2)(d) & (e).
