Your time, skills and experience can help us make sure no one has to care alone

We have a dedicated team of volunteers working across Wales to champion carers across Wales. They raise awareness of caring and Carers Wales, campaign for improved carers’ rights, fundraise for our work and connect carers with the right information and support they need. 

As a volunteer champion, we will support you to use your skills to help make life better for carers. Along the way, you’ll also develop new skills and make new friends.  

Whether you’ve only a few hours to spare or can make a longer commitment, there will be a valuable part for you to play. Click on the links below to find out more and apply or contact us at
