Volunteering has always been at the heart of CLAPA with hundreds of volunteers generously offering their time and skills in support of our work. We are always keen to expand the CLAPA community and recruit new volunteers, so if this is something that you may be interested in, please do get in touch. In order to become a CLAPA volunteer you will need to complete a Volunteer Application Form, provide two references and attend one of our Volunteer Induction Days. These are advertised on the website as well as in e-newsletters and targeted mailings, so make sure you’re signed up to the CLAPA Community.
The induction days are great for meeting others affected by cleft lip and/or palate, as well as some of our current volunteers. The day runs between 11am and 4pm and travel expenses will be reimbursed on production of receipts.
Once you have attended the induction day and we have received your references, you are classed as an official CLAPA volunteer. It is completely up to you how involved you are with CLAPA and which volunteer role(s) you take on.
