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.
We are currently very busy preparing for Christmas. People have been very generous in volunteering and we now have a full complement of volunteers for the season. In the New Year we will review our volunteering needs and will advertise any vacancies. We are unable to take any volunteers under the age of 18 even if accompanied by an adult.
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 we have centres in Stroud, Stonehouse, Dursley and Wotton that open at various times during the week. We don’t open in the evenings or at weekends.
If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!
