Helpline Vacancies

We are looking for Volunteers to help on our helpline

The main responsibility of a Help Liner is to receive and answer calls made to the branch during an allotted period of duty, usually one half day per week.

This is done from your own home; your number is never displayed to the callers. You take down information from callers and pass it onto other volunteers for handling.

You must have email, be able to complete a basic Word document and have a printer



For more information please contact Marian at enquiries@reading.cats.org.uk with some details

Shop vacancies

Our CP shop is located at The Triangle in Tilehurst and it is run by volunteers.  If you can help either a full day or half a day on a regular basis and like a busy friendly place to work then this could be for you.

Please contact our shop manager Louise on 0118 945 3733 or email info@reading.cats.org.uk and we can pass your details on.


Fundraising Team Leader volunteer

As a charity we are able to help thousands of cats each year thanks to the generous donations we receive from members of the public. Our fundraising team leaders have the exciting and varied role of inspiring our fundraising volunteers to plan and deliver local fundraising events. Using their passion and imagination, they oversee a small team of fundraising volunteers who come together to raise the vital funds needed to cover costs such as veterinary bills and food. Our fundraising team leaders support their team of volunteers in all aspects of their roles, making sure our volunteers are happy, confident and supported.

Publicity Team Leader Volunteer

Our publicity team leaders have the important role of supporting a wider team of publicity volunteers. As a team our publicity volunteers collectively keep members of the public informed of the vital and varied ways we help our feline friends in need. Raising awareness is crucial to us being able to help the thousands of cats and kittens each year that rely on us. A higher profile can help raise funds, raise awareness of adopting a cat, promote neutering and encourage as many people as possible to learn about feline welfare.
