Since Benthyg Cymru's beginning, volunteers have been an essential resource. By volunteering, you are not only helping a local community through community involvement, you will be developing new skills and broadening your own horizons.

We recognise and value those who have a wide range of hands-on practical and inter-personal skills, many of which can be done from home. We will need a committed team of volunteers to deliver and maintain a high-quality and reliable service. 

Volunteers will be given an induction and ongoing support, as well as the opportunity to select a role to which they feel most suited. Training can also be provided for certain skills.

Some of the skills we need to sustain Benthyg Penarth will include the following:

- Hosting / Reception / Front of House (Helping members borrow things)

- Social Media (Shouting about how awesome Benthyg Penarth is and what we have to offer)

- Administration / Organisation (Helping keep us super streamlined and efficient)

- Events (Organising events to share skills and showcase our things, or helping to staff a stand at one)

- Pop-up location staffing - NEW for 2022 - We are looking to appear at other places in and around both Penarth Town and The Vale of Glamorgan (along with Barry Benthyg). There we will promote Benthyg, as well as offer opportunities for people to borrow from us. Details of these will be available once we have arranged them.

- Repairer / Fixer / Tester (Work together to troubleshoot, fix and maintain our things). Training can be provided for some of these.

- Skill Sharer (Plan and host practical events on DIT, sewing, gardening, basic item maintenance or up-cycling)

- E-Bike Deliveries / Collections (Going around Penarth ( / CF64 area) on our e-cargo bike to make sure everyone can benefit from borrowing). Training on riding it provided.

- E-Van Driver - New for 2022 - The E-van will not only allow us to transport larger items, but also go further afield than the CF64 area for deliveries & collections (including donations), as well as visiting other locations for pop-ups. Full driving licence required.

If the above has caught your interest and you would like to get involved, please complete this


and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please also register with our website as part of the process. We will then contact you to arrange an induction session at our location.
