How can YOU help?
As a Volunteer Ambassador you will help Carers Wales connect with carers and promote
awareness of caring within local communities and our Clubs.
These will not be District appointments in the current year. There are definitely no caring responsibilities involved. Working with Carers Wales volunteers and staff, the main purpose is to increase awareness of what Carers Wales offers, boost the profile of Rotary in your community and possibly recruit new Rotary members. This role will be a rewarding and very much needed.
Full training and support will be provided. Safeguarding and COVID-19 regulations will be adhered to at all times.
