Volunteer roles

Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.

However, we're sorry but currently we have sufficient volunteer hours in all areas. Please check back if you remain available - thank you for your interest.

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 are able to help with, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis.

Warehouse volunteers

We often need volunteers to help weigh, sort and store donated food before it’s made into parcels for clients to collect.

Helping at a foodbank centre

We often need volunteers to greet clients and give out food parcels. Also to have an informal chat with clients over a cup of tea, to discuss their situation and signpost to further support.

Supermarket Collections

We often need volunteers to give out shopping lists and collect food donations at supermarket events.
