Volunteer

As 2021 progresses we are observing changes to the volunteer team and are now looking to recruit more volunteers.

We need volunteers who can help midweek daytime and ideally commit to at least three months, offering one session per week for approximately two-three hours. If you can commit longer but maybe only able to offer once-a-fortnight, we would also be interested in hearing from you.

Please note: The warehouse, parcel packing and driver roles all involve a degree of lifting and carrying so volunteers will need good fitness levels.

For drivers you will need a clean drivers licence, access to a car which is fully insured and has a valid MOT. Alternatively, if you cycle and have access to a cargo bike and wish to volunteer as a cycle delivery driver, we would also like to hear from you. We do not have any paid roles for delivery drivers.

All volunteers will need to complete an application form and provide references. Please email [email protected]

There are other ways in which you can support us including donating food so we can keep our shelves properly stocked. See our Give Help/Donate Food page for an up-to-date shopping list of our most needed items and a list of local COLLECTION LOCATIONS which includes supermarkets, cafes, shops and our own South London Warehouse.

You could also consider hosting a fundraiser (check our Instagram fundraising highlights @norwoodandbrixtonfoodbank for examples of recent initiatives and the column on the right of this page) and we could feature you on this page. You could also consider donating financially on a regular basis to ensure we provide continuous support. Again, visit our Give Help page for further information on how to do this and do sign up to our newsletter (scroll down to the bottom of the page) for the latest updates from Norwood and Brixton Foodbank.
