Volunteering roles

Who are we looking for?

The CGD Society welcomes volunteers with a variety of skills and experience that will benefit our charity. As a volunteer, we really do value your contribution and view this as an essential ingredient to the support we provide the CGD community around the world.

We are looking for enthusiastic people who are dependable, trustworthy, flexible and a great team player. We need people who are empathic and passionate about our cause and want to make a real difference to those affected by CGD.

We offer short and long-term opportunities to support us with activities ranging from fundraising, membership engagement, website development and grant writing. Support can be tailored to suit your skill set and interests. Please find below details of the roles we are particularly interested in at the moment, however, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to explore a different area.


The CGD Society positively welcomes, and seeks to ensure we achieve, diversity amongst our volunteers. We would like to encourage all groups of people to volunteer with us regardless of age, sex, religion, sexual orientation or disability. We will ensure all volunteers receive equal and fair treatment.

Fundraising Support

Have you got a passion for fundraising or perhaps previous fundraising experience within a non-profit organisation? We are looking for someone to support Claire, our Operations and Fundraising Manager, to help increase our income through engaging and fun fundraising events and activities. You will be given the opportunity to tell us your fundraising ideas, research potential fundraising activities and work with Claire to implement them. You will support us in encouraging our members and the wider community to take part. You would also keep in contact with our fundraisers to offer encouragement and support.

This would ideally suit someone who could give around 2 hours a week for the duration of 3 months and would be able to attend any on-line fundraising events to support Claire.

If volunteering is of interest to you or someone you know, or if you would like to discuss volunteering opportunities more generally, then please contact Claire at
