Volunteering for SCAS Charity

SCAS Charity is currently managed by a small team of SCAS staff who are responsible for all aspects of the Charity.  As a department of SCAS the Charity benefits from wider support from teams such as the SCAS Finance, IT and Comms teams but to a large extent this team manages all of the everyday work of the Charity. 

This inevitably means that resources are limited and we are always looking for volunteers willing to come and help us in a variety of different ways.  Becoming a Charity volunteer, like other volunteer roles, is a flexible commitment that can work around other activities an individual may have.  Hours can be agreed to suit you and various different roles are on offer.

Volunteering should be a mutually beneficial engagement between the Charity and the volunteer and as such we commit to a number of responsibilities to each other and to our Charity. To find out more view and download our volunteer handbook. 

Volunteering for SCAS Charity

Our Charity Ambassadors are a growing team of volunteers who we can call onto support the charity in the community or within our Charity Office based in Thame Oxfordshire.

Being a Charity Ambassador would primarily involve being available at weekends to attend fetes, fairs and county shows, to chat to the public about our work, help out at engagement events at a local supermarket or take part in a bucket collection at a major event.

In addition Charity Ambassador’s might be asked to support within the Charity Office to help us prepare for events. 

We will put out calls for help at various points through the year and volunteers are asked to help where and when they can.

Collecting tins across the SCAS area generate important funds for the Charity. Handing out and collecting tins back in can sometimes be time consuming and we are looking for people who are willing to give a few hours each week to go out in their local community and find places that will be willing to house one of our tins and then manage the relationship going forward. This would involve keeping an up to date spreadsheet of where tins have been placed and when, recording when they are collected back, counting funds and then recording and banking those donations.

We love it when people decided to create their own event to raise funds and it is always fantastic to see the ideas people come up with.  We are here to help you do that and to support you with your volunteering and fundraising.
