  • Publicity and communications

For more information please email volunteer@reading.cats.org.uk with some details of your skills and the type of work that you might be interested in.

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 info@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.
