We have many roles within the foodbank, suitable for volunteers of of varying back grounds, from light – moderate admin, or if you have more experience with office package, we will find ways to utilise your skills.
If you are looking for hands on, chatting with clients on a one to one basis, we do not give advice, but we can supply a listening ear, and signpost them to relevant services that may improve their situation.
Hands on people are also need sorting and storing food donations, and making up food parcels.
