We're sorry, this project is not currently recruiting volunteers. You can see a list of our available projects here.


This project in Mid-Glamorgan is a partnership between SVC, South Wales Police, the University of South Wales, RCT Council, South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, RCT Trading Standards, RCT Community Safety, Victim Support and GO Wales.

In Mid-Glamorgan (RCT, Merthyr, Bridgend/Porthcawl), activities include:

  • Experiencing a variety of Policing ranging from Community Engagement, Neighbourhood Policing and Rural Watch.
  • Gaining direct experience of working within individual Police departments. Opportunities can include; Hate crime, anti-social behaviour, crime reduction tactical analysis, bush fires, missing persons, offender management, taxi operations, substance abuse, motorbike scrambling, cyber crime.
  • There are additional opportunities within Victim Support (however this requires a dedicated two year commitment due to the nature of this policing, and the additional training received).
  • Volunteers will receive valuable experience of working in multi-agency operations, with project partners such as RCT Council, and the Fire Service.

This project requires specific vetting procedures organised by South Wales Police, plus project-specific training. There are usually at least two activities per month for the volunteers to get involved with.

Students, please note: Whilst we welcome applications from all students, the Police Volunteering Project (Mid-Glamorgan) does not provide university placements.
