Volunteer

Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.

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. Whatever role you choose, you will make a real difference to someone in need’s life.

We are always interested in hearing from enthusiastic people from Lambeth and Wandsworth who want to give their time to support our work.

Ideally, we need people who can commit to visits during working hours on Tuesdays and Fridays. If you are not available at these times, you can get involved with ad hoc volunteering at our supermarket collections in Clapham and Balham. Sign-up to our newsletter to find out more.

Schools Liaison Volunteers

We need help to contact local schools to motivate them to support our Foodbank. As one of our school liaison volunteers, you will build on our existing partnerships with teachers, outreach workers and parents.

You might be a parent or teacher or just enthusiastic to forge links with a variety of places of education across our area. This role will involve maintaining close contact with interested groups in person, and via email or phone.

If you are interested in volunteering in Schools Liaison, please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you!

General Volunteers

From time to time, we have a vacancy for a general volunteer at our Foodbank. This role involves meeting our clients, packaging and storing food, and giving any advice or support that the people who visit us might need.

Clapham Park Foodbank is open between 11am and 2pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. Foremost, we need the help of enthusiastic people who can regularly commit to either of these times.

Please get in touch here to find out if we are recruiting for general volunteers.

If you would like to help but can’t commit to one of our open positions, fundraising might be a perfect fit for you! Read our recent blog post for some fundraising ideas.
