Volunteer with CCF

In an average year 150 volunteers help put on an incredible 65 climate friendly events in Cambridge. Volunteers aged between 18-80yrs help organise Open Eco Homes, Repair Cafes and swaps, green film screenings, green living courses, sustainable food conferences, eco fashion shows and much more.

We’re currently looking for:

Office volunteers – Supporting our office and operations, helping out with admin, website and comms

Trustees – Delivering strategy and governance that ensures CCF is effective, engaging  and well-run 

Open Eco Homes Hosts – do you have a local, well-retrofitted older home or a sustainable new one that you could show, in-person or online?  Others would love to learn from you to help create their own version.  More Details

Events volunteers – Helping out at occasional events, setting up and pack down, meeting and greeting, serving teas and coffees etc.

Outreach volunteers – Talking to others about climate change and carbon reduction, helping us by giving talks and running outreach carbon footprinting stalls

If you can help with any of the other roles (or have other suggestions for how you might be able to support our work) please email volunteering@cambridgecarbonfootprint.org. We’d love to hear from you.

Current roles

Volunteering with CCF

Some volunteers may be office based and help with say marketing, admin and event planning a couple of days a week whilst others dip in and out, helping with events when they can. To find out more about what CCF currently needs, please see the Role Descriptions listed under Current Volunteer Vacancies. Call or email our Events and Volunteer Organiser with any queries about volunteering with us on 01223 301842 or email volunteering@cambridgecarbonfootprint.org.

CCF is dependent upon the hugely generous donations of time, skills, knowledge and talent that our volunteers bring and we can’t thank them enough.

Volunteer Case Studies

Peter - Comm's Support

"I got involved initially when they asked me to come in and run a session on how they could market themselves and communicate more effectively...I love small organisations with ambitions to punch above their weight, which is CCF all over."

Bernard - Home Energy Helper

“I have been involved for 5 years and in that time been involved with the Climate Friendly Homes and as a Thermal Imaging Surveyor, a helper on stalls and Open Eco Homes steward.”

Jane - Trustee

"CCF is thoughtful, lively, inclusive. You will stretch and challenge yourself, meet some interesting people. A low-carbon future could be so very good! It matters that we move things as far as we can in the right direction."

Tom - Repair Engineer

"I am particularly keen on consumer technology and repairs. The best bits about being involved are celebrating successful events when we've inspired new people."

Bev - Outreach Team

“I love running workshops for new audiences, hearing their views, getting new ideas… Climate change can be a daunting challenge - even though we are only working locally, it is amazing how much more positive I feel because I'm working with other like-minded people”

Brand - Cook

“I started in the kitchen at the Food Conference and I have been involved in the 5:2 Good Food Challenge…The passion, support and knowledge which is available (at CCF) is amazing”

Katie - Designer

"The best bit about being with CCF is experienc in the hype when we are on the final run up to an event and everyone is working together to get things ready - there's an excited energy."
