The Ipswich Cats Protection, along with many other Cats Protection Branches are solely run by volunteers. Each and every person involved in the welfare, care and re-homing of the cats- all volunteers. Everyone “behind the scenes” with admin, fundraising and advertising, also all volunteers.
Volunteering can help you gain valid experience in a role of which you desire to make a career, it helps with personal growth and strengthens your skills at no cost. When volunteering for the Ipswich Cats Protection, you can explore your interest in animals (cats in particular!) and gain the knowledge and experience you are seeking. 
“The Ipswich CP is such a fantastic place to volunteer. I have been in many different roles and each one I have learnt so much, gained many new friends and most importantly really enjoyed myself.” - Megan, volunteer for 4 years and counting!

Would you consider volunteering with us?
We are always looking for people of all ages and talents to help at the Ipswich Cats Protections. Woodworkers, DIY, electricians, knitters, seamstresses, crafters, bakers, administration, car drivers, you name it, we need it.

We need you every day, once a week, once a month, whatever suits you - we just ask you be keen and reliable. 

If you wish to enquire about volunteering for another role which is not listed above, please still contact us as we may still be able to help!
