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.
Warehouse volunteer (No Volunteers needed at present)
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.
Transport ( No Volunteers needed at present)
We need volunteers to collect donated food from across the Vale and deliver it to our warehouse. If you have transport and can help with this we’d love to hear from you
Foodbanks need finance to meet their running costs. We would love to hear from you if you can help us in this area.
Supermarket collections (No Volunteers needed at present)
We do occasional collections at supermarkets. We give out lists of the food we need, date mark donated items, sort them for packing and transport them to the warehouse. If you can help with any of this, we’d love to hear from you.
Our local website needs constant attention. Could your digital skills help communicate our message to a local and global audience? You will need to know a little about websites and ideally have experience of using WordPress (though training and support is available).
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
