"CAN is an exceptionally welcoming organisation... In the future I hope to go into community arts and arts management and I know that my volunteering with CAN has given me invaluable experience and put me in good stead!" Shereen Perera


Volunteers make a huge contribution to CAN’s projects and events and we really value their involvement. There are a range of roles in which you can get involved from administrative to event management support. Volunteering roles at CAN have included:

  • Project management support for the community outreach workshops for Manchester Day Parade
  • Front of house roles at Exodus events
  • Volunteer Coordinator for the Manchester Day Parade
  • Actors for the Down with the Dictator production

Read a case study of how a volunteer became involved in our work, what they feel they have gained from this experience and how their work has benefited the people who take part in our projects:
