We are looking for friendly and considerate volunteers who are sensitive to the different needs and vulnerabilities of the recipients. A reasonable level of fitness is preferable as volunteers may handle some heavy boxes when stocking the room. Volunteers must have access to their own vehicle.

We operate the Clothing Room once to three times per week, as a flexible team service, and work on 7 intake rosters. Volunteers can commit to only one day per week or more days, depending on their availability and the needs of the programme. Due to the nature of the role, volunteers for this service are asked to consider helping on an ongoing basis.
