Volunteers are a crucial part of WCADA and without their support we could not offer the wide range of service options we do.

In order to prepare our volunteers to work in this field we offer all new volunteers a place on our extensive volunteer training course. This 11 week course equips all volunteers with the necessary knowledge and skills to work within WCADA. Sessions are subject to change dependent on facilitator.
