Join our team Volunteer Why volunteer? Why volunteer? Each year Cafs provides support to over 6,800 children, families and individuals. We are very fortunate to have volunteers assisting us right across the organisation. We recognise that without volunteers, Cafs simply could not function at its current level. Our volunteers contribute thousands of hours to a wide range of tasks and continuously support Cafs. Mandatory Checks Cafs is a child safe organisation. To ensure ongoing safety towards children across all areas of our organisation we require all our people (employees, volunteers – including Board members, student placements, contractors etc.) and applicants for any of these roles to undertake all mandatory checks before commencement.
