Caring for Communities and People

We all have the power to change our lives for the better, but some of us need help along the way.

CCP believes in making a difference. We believe in a society where everyone can transform their lives and realise their aspirations and our priority is to support those who have serious and immediate need, equipping them to meet the demands of an ever-evolving society.

As a CCP volunteer, you will be very much at the core of what we do, with the opportunity to access professional training, contribute your ideas to how our services and organisation runs and engage in regular social events.

Our Opportunities

Appropriate Adult Service (supporting people in custody)

This service is available throughout Gloucestershire, Melksham and Swindon.

CCP's Appropriate Adult Service operates a team of volunteers who attend when a young person (under 18) or vulnerable adult is detained in police custody without a family member or appropriate adult there to support them.

Full training and on-going support is provided. The AA volunteer does not offer legal advice, they facilitate the communication between the detained person and the Police, ensuring the detained person's welfare needs are met, their rights are upheld and any additional needs are communicated to custody staff. They help the detained person understand the process and help ensure that process is conducted fairly and that the outcomes are clearly understood by the detained person.

The AA service operates a weekly rota from 9am to 10pm in three shifts. Volunteers can select a shift pattern to suit their individual needs.

CCP runs a number of events to help raise funds and the profile of the services it provides. Our Events and Fundraising Team are always looking for support from volunteers on an ad hoc basis.

These include:

Hamper Scamper - the Christmas collection and delivery service providing hampers of goodies to those in need.

Cheltenham Challenge - this running event takes a lot of organisation so volunteers are needed across a number of disciplines from behind the scenes support to helping man water stations on the day.

If you are interested in marshalling our Cheltenham Challenge, gift wrapping as part of Hamper Scamper or being a great encourager when it comes to an abseil then get in touch. The beauty is that you can volunteer alongside another role within CCP.

Email to register your interest or keep an eye out for opportunities shared through our social media.

Our Volunteering Mission

CCP's aim is simple - To Transform Lives                                 

We are an 'Investing in Volunteers' accredited Charity which engages hundreds of volunteers each year to support our Mission. 

Each year, our volunteers donate over 30,000 hours across our services. 

In turn we are proud to have been part of our volunteers' individual journeys towards improving their skills, confidence or simply giving them a means to make a positive impact on the lives of disadvantaged people. 

Volunteer and change lives - maybe even your own!
