Volunteering with Us

Benefits of Volunteering

Volunteering has so many benefits – both to the individual volunteering and to the beneficiaries of their support.

As a volunteer with Cyfannol, you can:

  • Make a positive difference in your community/individuals’ lives

  • Develop new skills and build your self-confidence

  • Be part of a team and connect with new people

  • Receive specialist training and regular supervision

Being a mentor for the last 15 months has been fantastic! Knowing that just giving some of your time can make such a difference to someone’s future is amazing. It’s so fulfilling and the staff have been so supportive during the training and onto the mentoring itself! So excited to see what the next year brings.

Volunteer Mentor

Volunteering opportunities:

Volunteer mentors

Our volunteer mentors act as a person of consistency for children engaged with our mentoring projects, helping them set positive goals and offering encouragement, praise and positivity, resulting in a more well-adjusted, happy, confident and positive young person.

We are particularly looking for male volunteers, but also welcome interest from women.

Volunteer counsellors

Our Horizon sexual violence counselling service is supported by counselling volunteers, many of whom are working towards counselling qualifications.

We accept volunteer counsellors at Level 4 to support this specialist sexual violence project.

Horizon Exploitation Service volunteers

Our exploitation team are looking for volunteers to support with their evening outreach sessions in Newport.

Please contact us for further information.


We welcome applications from all areas of the community to join our Board of Trustees, male or female. However, we particularly encourage applications from those identifying as having protected characteristics, including members of our BAME community, as well as individuals with disabilities, who are currently under-represented on our Board of Trustees.
