The volunteering experience
SNAP Cymru relies greatly on the generosity of individual Volunteers, donors, local business and trusts who help deliver and fund our services for children, young people and their families. This year with your help we have provided services for over 3000 families. Your ‘Gift of Time’ is measureable and valued by SNAP Cymru, Wales Assembly Government, Local Authorities, children, young people and families. The vision of SNAP Cymru and its Chief Executive Director, Denise Inger, is that every small community across Wales will have face to face access to a trained Volunteer who is knowledgeable about all aspects of additional learning needs, local provision and partnerships. Increasing participation and promoting partnership working will improve provision of services and equity of access. Volunteering can help close the postcode lottery to multi agency service provision and improve the life chances of children and young people in Wales. Whatever your Volunteering role your ‘Gift of Time’ is helping toward making a difference to children, young people and families across Wales.
Volunteering for SNAP Cymru is unique and rewarding – and we have awards to prove it! Recently, SNAP Cymru were announced as recipients of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Volunteering Award 2012. We are the only exclusively Welsh organisation to receive the award as recognition for our unique role, on a national scale, to advance the education of people in Wales and support their inclusion. Last year, we were delighted to receive the Investing in Volunteers Award, for the second time, in recognition for achieving quality standards in their work with volunteers. Renewing our Investing in Volunteers award has helped us to identify how we can continue to develop and improve the way in which we recruit, train and support our volunteer team.
SNAP Cymru relies on donations and grants in order to provide our services. We are very grateful for every single gift that we receive; from the regular donations of £5 a month, to the larger donations and grants from major funders.
Your donation will mean that we can continue to provide much-needed advice and support to families and carers, particularly through our Helpline and Casework service.

50 Ways to Raise a Fiver
50 Ways to Raise a Fiver is the the name of this wonderful fundraising pack Give it a read through and perhaps you’ll find your true calling, or maybe not but you’ll definitely find fifty ways to help us and have a laugh along the way.
Who knows? Maybe lighting will strike and you’ll see a way to better our ideas (it’s possible) or you might come up with something entirely different again, if that’s the case go for it.
Either way you’re raising funds for us to help families in Wales, and we really can’t thank-you enough.
Corporate Supporter Scheme
We would like to work with each individual corporate supporter to build a partnership which is right for you and us. We can provide a range of levels of support and varying packages of benefits, so we can really build up a relationship that is mutually advantageous linking in to our training and partnership working expertise, helping you to achieve your corporate social responsibility goals.
Many organisations now have a payroll giving scheme in place which allows members of staff to make tax free donations to a charity of their choice. It is up to employees how much money they choose to give and donations can be changed or cancelled at any time. To find out more about setting up a payroll giving scheme visit the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) website.
Every year SNAP Cymru organises a programme of conferences, campaigns and other events throughout Wales. Sponsoring one of our events is a great way to increase awareness of your organisation, enhancing its public profile throughout Wales.
Use of Facilities
Our work takes us throughout Wales and we are always grateful for the offer of the use of rooms we can use for training, launches, meetings or conference venues. We would be delighted to talk to you about the variety of opportunities available. Please do get in touch with our Campaigns Officer Caroline Rawson.
