Volunteer

Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need. Please note as of 2021 we are not taking on any new volunteers at this time.

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.

General volunteer roles

Please note as of 2021 we are not taking on any new volunteers at this time. We will update this page when we have vacancies available.

We occasionally have roles available in our warehouse / behind the scenes. 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 at our depot in Ruxley Lane. All positions currently filled.

We also welcome ad hoc driving, furniture collections/deliveries, manning our stands at community events or being involved with charity collection days, and much more. Do get in touch to find out more. All positions currently filled. If you would like to hold a fundraising event for us, please let us know on [email protected] We can supply you with donation tins and publicity information.

Helping at a foodbank centre

At our 5 distribution centres our volunteers meet clients and give out food parcels. They have an informal chat with clients over a cup of tea, to discuss their situation and signpost to further support. If you are interested in finding out more, please email Jackie on [email protected] PLEASE NOTE THAT due to Covid we have temporarily moved to a delivery-only service and our centres remain closed – JANUARY 2021.

Please note as of 2021 we are not taking on any new volunteers at this time. We will update this page when positions become available.
