Volunteering

Cartrefi Conwy tenants can find volunteering opportunities through Creating Enterprise. You can volunteer in a number of different types of work, based on the services that Cartrefi Conwy and Creating Enterprise provide.

HOW TO APPLY

Email or  phone – 01492 588980 / volunteering@creatingenterprise.org.uk

We’ll arrange an informal chat, which can be over the phone or in person (we’ll come out to meet you). During this part of the process we’ll discuss the sort of volunteer opportunities that would work best for you.

After that, we’ll arrange a trial placement so that you can have an opportunity to decide whether or not that type of work is for you.

And finally, if everyone’s happy, we’ll agree hours to suit you and you’ll be ready to get started.
