    We are looking for volunteers to help with the general running of the shop. This can include helping us to sort through donated items, preparing items for sale and serving our customers on the till. If you have an eye for fashion, or you are knowledgeable about popular and good quality items then you might be able to help us spot some hidden gems in amongst the donations. 

    The ideal volunteer will have a friendly and cheerful manner and will be able to work as part of a team. The ability to follow instructions and keep work areas tidy will be important. An interest in fashion and clothing or a knowledge of popular brands will be useful but is not essential.

    Do you have parenting experience and want to support local families or have experience of working or volunteering with children/families?Home-Start are looking for volunteers with parenting experience to help local families (with at least one child aged 8 or under) who could use some additional support.

    The needs of individual families will vary but as a Home-visiting Volunteer you could be involved in anything from engaging in fun activities with the children and helping parents with managing behaviour to practical or emotional support for the families.

    Volunteers are currently supporting families in a variety of ways for example via calls/Zoom and face to face (in a Covid safe way), the way we support families will continue to be reviewed in response to Covid-19 rules and restrictions.

    Usually volunteers support families for around 2-3 hours a week and the time is flexible to suit your availability.
