To ensure the cats we have ready for homing are kept socialised and used to a variety of people, we have a regular rota of 'cat cuddlers' who visit Cuckfield Cattery once a week (for anything up to two hours) to sit with the cats, play with them and/or cuddle them.

We currently have a vacancy for Tuesday morning (between 9am-12 noon) so if you can commit to volunteer on a weekly basis (and have your own transport because of the rural location), please email midsussexcp@outlook.com with your contact details and we will be in touch.

(This isn't a volunteer role you can bring young children along to, unfortunately.)


We're also looking for some voluntary admin help for the branch (not a hands on 'cat position', unfortunately!)

It's not a huge commitment, and could be fitted in during evenings or weekends if you work full-time. The main help needed is:

Cat Cuddler Rota - contacting people who have expressed an interest to see if they would be suitable and visiting the Cattery (only once) with them. Updating the rota list.

Newsletter - coordinating with the person who produces this, to advise of the date it's needed by and suggesting any articles (but all the committee members help with content). Then liaising with the printers and mailing them out - stamped envelopes & address labels are provided.

Annual social event - help with finding a venue (with suggestions from the committee) and sending the invites out, then taking the meal deposits and keeping a note of meal choices for those attending, and liaising with the pub/restaurant about numbers & menu choices.

We also have a committee meeting once every 6-8 weeks.

If this sounds like something you could help us with, please email midsussexcp@outlook.com




Branch team leader

The importance of volunteers to Cats Protection cannot be overestimated. We are only able to help thousands of cats and kittens each year due to the efforts of our passionate volunteers who willingly give up their time and expertise to help our feline friends in need.  Our branch team leaders support volunteer groups in regards to all aspects of their roles, making make sure our volunteers are happy, confident and supported in their roles.
