As an organisation we rely heavily on volunteers and in order for the centre to run, we rely on the support, commitment and time given by all of our volunteers.

Samye Foundation Wales
250 Cowbridge Road East

As we are members of a number of voluntary associations, we can offer training courses to volunteers if they wish to develop particular skills. Our aim as a social enterprise is to develop the skills of volunteers.

We also work with Spice Time Credits which you can read more about here: if you volunteer with us we offer time credits to those who would like to be part of the scheme. Time credits can be spent in a variety of places such as leisure centres, trampoline parks, going to see a show and many more. Find out more here Spice Time.

Social Media

We always need help handing and building up our social media presence. We mainly use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest but are open to suggestions too!



We always need help writing blog posts, helping with advertising and many other projects.


We have a lovely garden around the back of the centre in Cardiff, we welcome anyone who likes to garden to volunteer with us - no need to be an expert! We also have plants around the front and lots of weeding to do!


Whether it be taking photos at courses, for the website or for a blog we always need help from people who are handy with a camera. Also those who can video events.


Cleaning is something we always need help with, whether it be washing up, cleaning cupboards, dusting, watering the plants, taking towels and blankets home to be washed.. the slightest help will be appreciated.


If you have the gift of the gab you are so welcome to help us! We always need to try and get people to join us on our courses and use a variety of marketing methods.


Working here has changed my life for the better. Everyone is so kind, understanding and friendly. You get to learn so much and meet people from all walks of life.

I like volunteering for Samye because every time I go in there is a nice smile and warm welcome as well as the friendly environment.
