Community Language Volunteers

We at the Cardiff Volunteer Centre @C3SC want to share information with the diverse communities in Cardiff. Although English is the primary language used in the information we provide, we are conscious that English or Welsh is not everyone’s first or native language. We are aware that a lot of people would prefer to speak, read and communicate in their language of choice.

Tasks could include:
– Translation of written materials
– Help with editing information on digital platforms
– Supporting C3SC with interpreting for members of the community and with sharing information via email, social media, telephone, video conferencing and other digital means  

– Attending events, fairs and drop-in sessions to support C3SC in their outreach to local communities.

Volunteers will also have an opportunity to promote and curate the Cardiff Community Platform. You will support a friendly team in sharing important information about the third sector to charities, volunteers and the general public.
General duties may include: organising and editing information for sharing, posting on our social media platforms including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn, posting on the WordPress powered website, sourcing copyright free images and depending on your previous website development experience, optimising pages on WordPress and Search Engines.
