Without the passionate and committed teams volunteers across Cats Protection we wouldn’t be able to help the thousands of cats and kittens each year that rely on us for help. Our welfare team leaders have the important role of co-ordinating, encouraging and supporting teams of volunteer fosterers and cat care assistants. They help make sure other volunteers with direct cat care roles are happy and confident and provide advice and guidance when needed. This incredible teamwork means we are able to help more cats and kittens in need.

You will develop new skills, expand your knowledge and make a significant contribution to improving the lives of cats and kittens by leading and supporting other volunteers in direct cat care roles. You will also meet new people, make new friends and be part of a dedicated team of volunteers.

  • Basic knowledge of cats and cat care
