Volunteering opportunities are available within Cyfarthfa Park for people who would like to be actively involved in their community. Within the Heritage Lottery funded volunteer project there are 2 different volunteering opportunities:
• Mentor volunteering where the volunteer works with vulnerable adults in a support role (this is subject to the volunteer passing an enhanced CRB check)
• Project volunteering where the volunteer assists with improving or maintaining physical elements within Cyfarthfa Park.
Volunteers are offered a supportive training programme to encourage them to reach their full potential in a relaxed outdoor environment. Formal qualifications can be gained which include BTEC landbased studies.
Volunteering is often a stepping stone for people wishing to retrain or gain employment.
