Volunteering

Volunteers are the lifeblood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need. If you are 18 or over and want to get involved, read on! Please contact us by email at volunteering@stretford.foodbank.org.uk

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. If you’re offering to work from home there are admin jobs you could do in your time. Whatever role you choose, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis.

Saturday volunteers

Helpers are needed to staff a collection table in Stretford Mall every Saturday 10am -2pm. Would you be prepared to go on a rota?

Voucher coordinator

Foodbanks work with frontline agencies who in turn refer clients to the foodbank. Stretford foodbank has around 80 referral partners. This role will involve issuing and distributing vouchers to these agencies. Full training and support will be provided.      volunteering@stretford.foodbank.org.uk

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. (Thankfully we are well staffed in this area)

Web editor

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).
