Detailed description

Volunteer role description: Fundraising volunteer

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity and our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.


Cats are at the centre of everything we do and our objectives are: homing, neutering and educating people about cats and their care.


We help thousands of cats across the UK each year thanks to our network of dedicated volunteers, employees and supporters.

A bit about this role

As a charity we are able to help thousands of cats each year thanks to the generous donations we receive from members of the public. Our fundraising volunteers use their passion for cats and people to raise the vital funds needed to help more cats and kittens in need. As a fundraising volunteer we want to support you to fundraise in whatever way suits you best – whether that’s organising a fundraising event, fundraising online, promoting fundraising activities on social media, completing administration or supporting the development of new fundraising ideas! Whatever your skill set, this could be the role for you!


What can you expect to be doing?

This is a really flexible role – you can choose what you’d like to get involved with:

●     face-to-face fundraising – organising or helping with fundraising events, running supermarket collections and fundraising stands, monitoring collection tins

●     online fundraising – setting up online appeals, increasing social media engagement to maximise funds raised

●     marketing – spreading the word about our fundraising activities, for example on social media and with the local press 

●     completing administration – processing donations, sorting and recording donated goods, completing Gift Aid paperwork

●     championing our work – getting involved with developing new fundraising ideas and increasing community engagement

What are the benefits to you and the cats?

You will develop new skills, expand your knowledge and make a significant contribution to improving the lives of cats and kittens by helping raise vital funds through fundraising activities. You will also meet new people, make new friends and be part of a dedicated group of volunteers. Whether you’d rather be out and about, or volunteering from your own home, there are so many ways to fundraise.

We’re looking for someone with

●     Good communication and interpersonal skills

●     Willingness to be part of a team

●     Good organisational skills

●     Flexible approach

●     Knowledge of local community networks (would be an advantage)

Time expectation

This is a flexible role that can fit around your other commitments. You’ll be part of a team all working together to raise vital funds while having fun in the process!

Support, guidance and keeping you safe

At Cats Protection we believe our volunteers should be happy and confident in their roles. We provide support and guidance from our National Cat Centre and through our regional and local volunteer groups and teams. We offer engaging online and face-to-face training, expenses and have policies and processes to help volunteers get the most out of their time with us.


The well being of our people is important and at Cats Protection we are committed to safeguarding children, adults at risk and all those that we come into contact with as part of our activities.


Thank you for joining us and sharing in this commitment and for everything you will do during your time with Cats Protection.

About Cats Protection SW Community Fundraising Hub

Since 1927 we have helped cats across the UK and helped people to better understand their needs. As a community of volunteers, employees, supporters and partners, we’ve improved the lives of millions of cats and transformed the way millions of people see and care for cats.

Our vision is a society where every cat has their best possible life because they are protected, cared for and understood by everyone.

This is not an easy thing to achieve, but that’s the point. It’s challenging and ambitious. But by moving towards it we’ll continually make the world better for cats and people.

We also have a clear definition of what we all do in Cats Protection – the mission we are on to deliver our vision.

We are a movement of people championing the welfare of cats. We lead society in a richer understanding of all cats and care for those that need our help.

This can be summed up by our purpose. If we can help everyone to better understand cats and their needs, we can help them to behave differently towards them, to care for them in the best way and to ensure the world appreciates and protects cats. That is why our purpose is:

To help people see the world through cats’ eyes
