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.|
|Role Title:||Volunteer Campaigner|
|Where:||Various locations: Your home and in your local community. Plus access to our Croydon office.|
|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.|
|Roles:||Modern Slavery Education Campaigner – We are seeking volunteers to join our trained team of presenters to work with schools on a regular basis delivering presentations to young people, to raise awareness of modern slavery. We train our Campaigners on the issue of modern slavery and trafficking locally and nationally.
Intelligence Gathering Officer – Volunteers are trained to investigate dubious establishments where trafficked people may be exploited via newspaper ads, the internet and shop window ads. 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?
Fundraising – 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.
