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.
Would you like to support young people (usually 16-17 years old) who are under local authority care to live independently? This is what the Independent Living Service for Young Homeless People is all about.
CCP runs a number of supported accommodation units for young people in the following areas:
Volunteers are needed in a variety of roles to help support the staff providing the service to young people in these locations.
You'll be working with individuals either in a CCP accommodation unit, in their family setting or out in the community. Activities will include developing independent living skills, sports and social activities. Volunteers may also attend appointments and meetings with residents and/or provide advice and guidance necessary to increase independence.

This service is available throughout Gloucestershire, Melksham and Swindon.
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'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!
