Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
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. Our volunteer force of over 70 people are loyal and turnover is low but from time to time we do have opportunities for volunteers.
Thank you for looking at our volunteer page but due to the many people wo have recently expressed an interest in volunteering, we are sorry that we are unable to deal with any more enquiries at this time. If you have already made an enquiry we will respond to you in January 2018.
The types of opportunities that are sometimes available are as follows:-
Helping to weigh, sort and store donated food before it is made into parcels for clients to collect.
Distribution Centre volunteer
Meet clients and give out food parcels. Have an informal chat with clients over a cup of tea, to discuss their situation and signpost to further support.
