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 firstname.lastname@example.org
For information about how to become a trustee please refer to the Governance page, under Stakeholders.
Cambridge Women’s Resources Centre
Support Worker to work with women offenders
20 hrs/wk £11,821 pa (£21,868 pro-rata to a 37 hour week)
We have an exciting opportunity within The Dawn Project. The Dawn Project has been running for 8 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 a Women's Centre.
