Volunteering for CCAT

 

The Charity: CCAT is a registered charity fighting human trafficking in the borough of Croydon and now, due to our success in raising this issue successfully in Croydon, through our model YCAHT (Your Community Against Human Trafficking) we help start and develop other community anti trafficking groups in their areas. Our volunteers bring their skills and passion to our Events Team, our Schools Team and to our Intelligence Gathering Team.  Others simply help wherever and whenever they can on all the things that a charity needs to do to function effectively.
Role Title: Volunteer
Where: Various locations: Your home and in your local community.  Plus access to our Croydon office.
When: Immediately or when you are ready
Commitment: We are looking for volunteers who can help regularly, occasionally or on a one-off basis. Opportunities are flexible and varied based on whatever time and skills you can offer.We are keen on finding volunteers from other areas in the South East so that they can establish similar anti trafficking groups where they live.
Duration: Ideally on-going
Requirements:  Events team
Are you creative? Do you work well within a team? Do you like to plan and organise fun events to benefit an important cause?
Our team help co-ordinate, advertise and run events throughout the year to raise awareness of the injustice of human trafficking.  If you’d love to be involved, whatever your level of events experience, please get in touch.

Schools team
Our trained team of presenters work with schools on a regular basis delivering presentations to young people, raising awareness of trafficking and of how to deal with the problem.  We train our volunteers on how to offer information, literature and Q&A sessions to local community groups, recruiting new members and support from schools and throughout the borough.

Intelligence Gathering team
Several volunteers investigate dubious establishments where trafficked people may be exploited via newspaper ads, the internet and shop window ads and the resulting information is carefully compiled and shared with the Council and local Police.  Is this something you could do as part of the team and maybe develop under our YCAHT model?

Communications and Advocacy activity
We work with local authorities, public services, charities, schools and community groups to share knowledge about trafficking and help to devise strategies for tackling the problem.  Our activities include attendance at local community forums, advice and consultation with public services, attendance regional campaign meetings with other associated charities and we also take part in research projects.  We need people to communicate the YCAHT model in other areas in the South East.   If this interests you do please contact us.Office team

Do you have a talent or idea for fundraising?  Whether you bake, swim, skydive, run, walk, sing or cycle we would love to have your support.  Our volunteers have raised thousands of pounds for us in the past doing all sorts of creative things from sponsored stiletto walks to theatre performances.  Have a look through the site for some examples.
