Many apologies to all the people who have contacted us about volunteering over the last year. We are getting back to working normally, but with such a backlog of issues to deal with, we have reluctantly decided to hold off taking on new volunteers.

Volunteers are the life-blood of CROWS, but being a small organisation with no paid staff, we have to make sure that new people get a good introduction to CROWS and the work. We are revamping the way we recruit new volunteers and give them experience of the work we do. We hope to have completed this by October and then should be in a better position to decide when we can start recruiting again.
