CASA is predominantly a voluntary group with approximately 540 dedicated volunteers spread across our network of 20 branches nationwide. Our local group leaders and volunteers generously give their time without receiving any pay, allowances, or unvouched expenses.
In addition to giving freely of their time and service, volunteers often fund the cost of their own participation in activities, events and trips, subject to affordability. This approach reduces costs for CASA and maximises the benefits of fundraising contributions.
Our directors and board of management are all voluntary and do not receive any pay, allowances or unvouched expenses.

The earnings of our staff range from a maximum of 50,000 Euro (gross) per annum to a minimum hourly rate of 9.25 Euro.
