Specialists in Cerebral Palsy

Be a shop volunteer

What are the benefits of becoming shop volunteer?

People choose to volunteer in our shops for many different reasons with each person having a different reason for wanting to give back.

We have four shops in total based in Llanishen, Crwys Road and Barry with a furniture shop in Rhiwbina. You can find the address for each shop here.

Some people volunteer 20 hours or more a week, while others two or three but no matter what each person is making a valuable contribution to Bobath Wales and we cannot thank them
enough.

Some of the benefits of volunteering in our charity shops include:

  • An opportunity to learn new skills, knowledge and experience
  • Develop existing skills and knowledge
  • A place to meet new people and socialise
  • Strengthen your CV and improve your employment prospects
  • Get to know more about Bobath therapy and cerebral palsy
  • Gain confidence and self-esteem while feeling valued and part of a team
  • A feeling of satisfaction because you will be making a difference

The list goes on; however one of the most rewarding benefits is knowing that your volunteering is helping babies and children in Wales with cerebral palsy.

“I really enjoy working at the Bobath shop. It is interesting learning new skills and making new friends. I would encourage anyone with a few hours spare to come and join us support this fabulous charity.” Volunteer, Marie
