Volunteers are the mainstay of our organisation. These include Board Members, volunteer counsellors, administrative and other volunteers with a range of skills. If you are able to offer your time and skills please contact us to see if we have a suitable position available for you.

Volunteers are a very important, valuable integral part of Cygnus Support. They provide most of Cygnus Support's service delivery and come from all walks of life.

They are supported by experienced paid staff who have overall responsibility for the day to day running of the organisation. In 2012 alone, 32 volunteers did over 2,600 hours of work, ranging from counselling, support with debt advice, welcoming people, dealing with enquiries, 1-1 support for clients, office duties or being on our Board of Trustees.
