VOLUNTEERING - make a real difference!
Volunteers are the lifeblood of GRWE - we simply could not operate without the support of our generous and valued volunteers, all of whom play a central role in our rescue and rehoming work by donating their time, skills and energy to support the charity. Our roles give the opportunity to build new skills, meet new people and gain valuable experience while volunteering with the Animal Charity Team of the Year 2013!
National roles can be done from anywhere in the country. We are looking for passionate and motivated individuals (more important than experience!) and our volunteers are always supported by other experienced members of the GRWE team. If you are interested in these roles please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteer Support Officer. This post will produce a volunteer manual to support all GRWE volunteers in their vital roles for the charity.
National Communications Officer. We are looking for a volunteer to support GRWE's communications, including our e-newsletter and supporter magazine.

PR officers - if you are interested in volunteering with our PR team, please email email@example.com. PR officers work with other volunteers in their region to promote GRWE's work, via press releases, posters and other communication channels. The PR team represents the charity in the public eye. Officers need to have good communication skills and follow a writing guide which helps literate PR novices produce work to a professional standard. Motivated volunteers will receive full support from experienced team members.
