Volunteers can play a crucial role in the support we provide to women, young people and children who experience violence and abuse. Volunteering can also help individuals develop self-confidence, esteem, friendships and a sense of community. Indeed, volunteers are an important link between our services and our communities; we want to learn from our volunteers, and encourage them to be an integral part of Cardiff Women’s Aid.

We aim to offer a wide range of volunteering roles to reflect the skills and diversity of the populations we exist to serve, whether that’s volunteering directly with people we support, or assisting our central services with campaigning and fundraising. Check out our current opportunities below; if you don’t see a role you like, use the application form to tell us about the kind of volunteering you’re interested in. We always welcome new ideas and perspectives and are excited to see our volunteering programme develop over time!


No matter what role you undertake for Cardiff Women’s Aid, you will be making a valuable contribution to our mission to see a world free from gender-based violence. Cardiff Women’s Aid was founded by volunteers, so as a volunteer, you will be continuing their important legacy. We hope as a volunteer, you find your experience at Cardiff Women’s Aid to be meaningful and fulfilling. We hope that in return for your time and effort you can:

  • Be an ally to women, young people and children experiencing abuse

  • Use your voice to support others and improve services

  • Learn transferrable skills and best practice in your area of choice

  • Improve your personal development and knowledge base

  • Receive relevant induction training, including Violence Against Women, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence (VAWDASV)

  • Empower others and feel empowered
