Do you have some time to spare and would you like to join the Project as a volunteer helper?
Most of the people that work at the Project are volunteers, if you are over 16 years of age, you can be one as well. There are lots of different ways that volunteers can be involved, these include:
- van crew,
- office work,
- warehouse work,
- customer care,
- sales (The Warehouse and The Shop),
- database input,
- Management Committee Member (elected).
We are totally dependant on volunteers and anyone can join us. All that is required is the willingness and commitment to give at least 2 hours of your time.
In return we will give you an opportunity to develop your skills, increasing your self-confidence, improving your computer skills, and helping you to effectively deal with people.
What we can give obviously depends on the sort of person that you are and the skills that you already have. We will provide training where possible and appropriate, and you will have the satisfaction of contributing to the wider community.
If you wish to get back into full-time employment we will be able to give you work-related skills and an up-to-date reference.
Appropriate training and assessments are essential before volunteers are expected lift heavy items or to drive the Project’s van.
Drivers must already have passed their car test, be over the age of 25 years and be competent to drive Groups B + C1 vehicles. Due to our insurer’s requirements, all volunteer drivers must have a clean licence.
All the Project asks from volunteers is that they are reliable, flexible, and polite to the customers.
The Project has all sorts of work to do and is usually able to find something that volunteers are comfortable with.
How do I become a Volunteer?
We actively encourage equal opportunities. Interested? Then please call in or telephone the Project during office hours and ask for Angela Dawson (Project Manager) to discuss what you could do to help us.
Or you can write to us at our address, including your name, address and a contact telephone number.
We will take you on a tour of the Project and answer any questions that you may have. You will wherever possible be given tasks in line with your preferences, abilities, and needs. We want all people, whatever your gender, ethnic background or mental and physical ability.
We look forward to hearing from you.
