Volunteer Vacancy: Veteran Support

Veterans support volunteers_VAS advert_May 2023

Voluntary Action Swindon (VAS) is the Council for Voluntary Service (CVS) in Swindon. A CVS is a charity which supports other charities and coordinates voluntary activity in the local area, as opposed to a frontline charity which supports individuals directly. A CVS is also a forum through which local voluntary and community organisations and statutory sector organisations can communicate with each other and work together.

• Assist with signposting Veteran’s in the local community to relevant support services and welfare links.

• Please be aware that this role does not involve any direct responsibilities towards the care of veterans; monetary or otherwise. Refer to Voluntary Action Swindon’s Adult Safeguarding policy for more information about ‘vulnerable and at-risk persons’.
