Volunteers are the lifeblood of food banks. Your skills could be just what we need. Please email [email protected] to enquire about any volunteer opportunities we have available.

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.

General volunteer roles

Please email [email protected] to enquire about any volunteer opportunities.

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.

We also welcome ad hoc driving, food 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. If you would like to hold a fundraising event for us, please let us know by emailing [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.

Please email [email protected] to enquire about any volunteer opportunities.
