THE SMART PROJECT
The SMART (Striving, Motivated and Resilience Team) Project is funded by a grant from the Volunteering Wales Grant Fund, provided by WCVA and WELSH GOVERNMENT.
The volunteers who join the ‘SMART’ project can work in a wide range of areas and positions within Threshold DAS or outside of the organisation in their chosen field.
All volunteers will undergo an in-depth induction (over three days), both formal/informal training in these settings – providing them with valuable skills and experiences. We will also provide them with Accredited Agored Cymru Qualifications in several subjects including: Volunteering at level 1 and level 2, Community Development, Assertive Living, Confidence Building, Enterprise, Employability Skills etc. All volunteers will receive 14 hours+ accredited Agored Cymru raining.
Volunteer opportunities will include;
- Administration work,

- Reception and customer service work,
- Working with children and young people,
- Designing databases,
- Finance work,
- Accredited educational delivery programmes,
- Website support,
