Volunteer

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.

Supermarket Collections

Can you give two hours of your time to help at our next supermarket collections? We need volunteers to help give out shopping lists, and help pack boxes.

We need help at supermarkets encouraging shoppers to buy an extra item and donate it on their way out. Volunteers are needed for two hour sessions.

Next collection:

No new dates available at the moment but will be posted here when confirmed for volunteers to sign-up.

Volunteer opportunities

Keen to get more involved? We have a number of ongoing roles for volunteers to help us deliver a warm welcome to the Foodbank and to help sort, and prepare, emergency food parcels for those in need.

We currently have vacancies for volunteers as follows:

  • Drivers – willing to do regular shifts (which tend to be on Saturday mornings, 9am to 10.30am with possibility of one or two shifts midweek) or ad hoc (which tends to be as required during the week, daytime). Must have a clean driving licence and preferably access to a car. Download our Volunteer application form to register your interest in this role.

In the meantime, there are other ways you can support us including donating food or hosting a fundraiser. Visit our Give Help pages and do sign up to our newsletter for the latest updates from the Foodbank.
