CAFAG (Chell Area Family Action Group)

CAFAG (Chell Area Family Action Group) is a registered charity based at the Whitfield Valley Centre in Fegg Hayes, Stoke-on-Trent. 

CAFAG aims to bring people and communities together to provide support and change lives. They aim to strengthen family life in the local area and the wider community through increasing community involvement, developing the local skills base, providing life opportunities, enabling local access to appropriate services as and when needed and enabling all members of the community to have fun and enjoy their lives.

Volunteers are at the very heart of everything that we do at CAFAG. Without our volunteers CAFAG simply could not provide the range and quality of activities that we do. Whether you have the time to volunteer on a regular or occasional basis we’d love to hear from you!

What volunteers have to say...

“Volunteering has put me into a routine and has given me extra skills.”

“CAFAG give me the opportunity to access different training.”

“There [is] plenty of support around the centre to enable me to communicate with others.”

“Reflecting on my role has allowed me to see how much I have developed in my role, and I am so much more confident now.”

“When completing a 1 to 1 supervision, I can get the best advice from my mentor to create different ideas in the department I volunteer with.”
