We support volunteers across a range of our services and can help organisations to recruit and support their own volunteers through appropriate training, support and signposting to other services.
All our volunteers receive full training in their roles, are treated with the same respect as our employees and can gain experience, a work reference and useful contacts in the sector by volunteering with us.
Currently, we have volunteers working with us in a number of positions, for example:
GRAFT Project Operative
This role involves working with the GRAFT project staff and customers to make up starter packs of household items and deliver them to vulnerable people moving into a tenancy, from homeless accommodation, prison or care. Key skills required are a willingness to engage with people who may be in recovery and/or have complex support needs, a practical nature with a knack for problem solving and manual handling.
Foodbank Distribution Centre Assistant
Working on a rota system with a team of volunteers, this role involves making up suitable food parcels and distributing them to people in need who have been referred to the Foodbank. Key skills are empathy for people facing hardship, willingness to listen and a desire to help others.
We often have short term opportunities that require a specific skill set, so even if you don’t want to commit to volunteering on an ongoing basis, let us know you’re there and what you can do, and when something comes up, we’ll contact you.
