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. 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.
Social Media/Website Maintenance
We are in need of someone to monitor and maintain our existing Facebook page, as well as make occasional updates to this website. Facebook responsibilities would include regularly finding and posting relevant stories and responding to incoming private messages. Website maintenance includes monthly updates to the Current Needs list and the addition of any seasonal appeal messages to the site. In all, it would require an average of one to two hours per week.
Helping at a foodbank centre
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.
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
