Volunteer with one of our projects

All of our projects run with a group of volunteers, whether it’s food collections in supermarkets, sorting out baby clothes, helping out in the cafe or serving in the shop – we couldn’t do what we do without our group of dedicated volunteers.

We value our volunteers and offer ongoing training and support. If you’re interested in donating your time and commitment, arrange a chat with our Volunteer Coordinator to see if we’ve got a volunteering role to suit your interests, skills and experience.

We are currently recruiting for our new Footprints Community Cafe on Redcar High Street.  Find out more here!

Please email our Volunteer Coordinator to find out more about our other current volunteering opportunities.
