Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
Due to the Corona virus we are currently unable to accept any more volunteers due to the limited space in our centre. We also currently have enough drivers. Please check with us after the Corona virus has ended when offers of help will be much appreciated.
Volunteers are the driving force behind foodbanks. There are thousands of volunteers across the UK, helping The Trussell Trust Foodbank Network get emergency food to people in crisis. We want you to enjoy volunteering and there are lots of ways to get involved. Whatever role you choose, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis.
We are truly blessed to have such a great crowd of volunteers and we could not work without them. At the moment all our teams are fully staffed. Please keep an eye on this page for future opportunities or look at www.vansweb.org.uk to find out which organisations could benefit from your help in our area.
We need help to weigh, sort and store donated food before it’s made into parcels for clients to collect. You could help in this vital work to ensure we have the right food available at all times.
No warehouse position available at the moment.
Foodbanks work with front line agencies who in turn refer clients to foodbanks. Some foodbanks have over 100 referral partners and in this role you will be coordinating the issuing and distribution of vouchers to these agencies. Once the vouchers are redeemed the data they contain needs to be added to our central database. Full training and support is available.
No admin position available at the moment.
