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 Housing 

Floating Support Worker

40 hrs/wk £26623 per annum

3-year Fixed term contract

We have an exciting opportunity within our Women’s Centre in Peterborough supporting women
coming out of prison into housing. This project will be working alongside The Dawn Project which 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 floating support worker, you will be working closely with women as part of the Through the Gate initiative to address barriers and effect change to establish more secure housing opportunities for women in Peterborough. 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 the 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 one full-time post or a job share of 20/20 hour split.


A driving licence is essential for this post.

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