Volunteering with INCAS
We are very keen to get younger people to join us, especially those who have been in care in the 70's, 80's and 90's. It would be so encouraging if they could carry on the good work of protecting all children placed in care in the future, by ensuring that history does not repeat itself and children are never again, subjected to the abuse that so many suffered in the past.
If you have any useful skills or experience that you would like to contribute to the running and future development of INCAS, please contact us.
We need volunteers for a range of tasks and projects, such as Administration, Fund Raising, Campaigning and Promotion Events.
Some very good reasons to volunteer with INCAS:-
* satisfaction at seeing positive results
* enjoyment of helping those in need
* meeting people and making new friends
* feeling a sense of personal achievement
* developing your inter-personal skills
* enhancing your CV
