Volunteering with Cedar Foundation is a fantastic way to make a real contribution. We are committed to involving volunteers at all levels of the organisation and to supporting disabled people to volunteer.

What volunteering involves:

Cedar supports individuals and families living with disability, autism and brain injury to live the lives they choose. To support our work, we recruit volunteers to assist service users in achieving personal goals.

While volunteering with us we will provide the support necessary to encourage and empower you to make a meaningful and valuable contribution and gain significant benefit from your volunteering experience.

The detail:

Location:  Various locations across Northern Ireland - Volunteer Support Workers are required in various departments across the organisation and in the local community where service users may require additional support. Cedar reimburses volunteers for all reasonable expenses they incur as a result of volunteering. This includes travel expenses and where appropriate a daily subsistence payment. We also recognise the important contribution of volunteers by including them in all appropriate celebrations and events.

Hours:  Many activities will take place between 9.00 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday although some events may take place at weekends or during the evening. Time commitment is flexible and ideally Volunteer Support Workers should be available 2- 3 hours per week on a regular basis to assist with planned activities.

Skills Required: Essential skills are patience, empathy, reliability and a genuine commitment to working as part of team to help others. Some roles require more specific skills such as ICT experience.
