The Society is run primarily by a volunteer workforce trained in social work, dietetics, counselling, and nursing etc. With the support of paid staff, they provide a raft of services that help cancer sufferers and their carers cope with cancer. Currently, CCSV has over 45 volunteers working on a part time/casual basis, and one full time volunteer managing the Society. CCSV draws on the personal experiences and skills of their volunteers and provides on-going training to their volunteer staff. Small grants are also offered to volunteers who require further training externally.
