Volunteer roles

There are loads of different ways that you can involved with the work that CamCRAG does with refugees in France.

Below are a few of the established roles that you could perform. Some roles require only a short-term commitment: you can move between many of these roles at different times, being a Convoy Driver one week and an Event Organiser another, or you can focus on one that captures your imagination. Some roles require a longer-term commitment, such as Fundraising Coordinator. All are open to anyone over 18 and many are available to anyone under 18 as well.

Just click on any of the roles below to find out more about that role.

If you think up another role or activity that you can’t see here then let us know – it may be just what we need but don’t know it yet!
