Volunteering



EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY SADLY WITH NEW GUIDELINES WE ARE HAVING TO TEMPORARY STOP ANY NEW VOLUNTEER RECRUITMENT this applies to all roles, so we at the branch can focus on the welfare of the cats in our care and the safety of the volunteers we already have volunteering at the branch.
If you have already applied we will be in contact later in the year when things get back to normal.
For those of you still wishing to volunteer we of course we will keep you all updated when the roles do
re-open.

There are many ways in which you could become actively involved in helping local cats to live a better life.

Cats Protection welcomes volunteers with open arms, whether you are young or old, male or female, there's a place for
you with us.  Volunteering is the most worthwhile thing you can ever do. It gives a real sense of achievement, allows the
development of new skills and the social possibilities are endless!

If you can volunteer for up to three hours a week in your spare time, then this will make all the difference to how much
we can achieve, and help more needy cats to get a second chance of happiness.

Volunteers should live in any of the following post code areas NR30- NR35.

If you are interested in doing any volunteering work for our branch then please email us at volunteering@angliacoastal.cats.org.uk 
(we aim to reply within 48 hours) and tell us about yourself and what you would like to get involved with. The more
information you give us the better, as it will allow us to suggest roles that match your skills and background.

Current volunteering roles within the branch are as follows...
Lost and Found Cats Volunteer

Unfortunately our feline friends can occasionally stray or get lost, which can be extremely distressing for their owners. Our lost and found volunteers are passionate about reuniting lost cats and bringing families back together. They help cats and their owners by advertising lost cats and providing support, advice and guidance to people searching for their cats.

Education Team Leader Volunteer

Our education team leaders play an important role in raising awareness of Cats Protection and feline welfare. They support and lead a team of education volunteers by providing the help, feedback and encouragement needed to make sure other volunteers are confident and happy in their roles. As a team, our education volunteers promote and deliver pre-prepared talks, help spread messages around feline welfare and act as the voice of cats in their local communities. They deliver information talks to adults and children, and help spread our vision of a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Branch Coordinator Volunteer

At Cats Protection we help thousands of cats and kittens each year thanks to our dedicated and passionate volunteer groups. We have over 250 branches across the UK, all of which help our feline friends in different ways. Branches take in stray and abandoned cats and ensure they receive the veterinary care and attention they deserve, help raise funds, promote neutering and help spread cat welfare messages. Our volunteer co-ordinators lead their local team by supporting and managing volunteers within their group, maintaining communications with both volunteers and staff, and helping promote a positive and professional image of Cats Protection.
