Volunteering @ Horsforth's Foodbank Outlet

Volunteers will be big part of the Foodbank team.

You can volunteer anything from a few hours a week or more if you have the time to spare. We really value any contribution you can make and we want you to enjoy volunteering

Volunteers will also be needed to;

Help out at supermarket collections

The list of things to do is not exhaustive, as we grow the things to do will also grow

Recruitment is via application and interview, 

We would like to use people’s strengths and skills, making sure you are put in the correct area that suits your skills
Who to contact details  

The application itself is not asking for a lot of detail, just basic stuff about you and asking for two referees
(the application form was created by  Trussell Trust)

Once the application is processed we will ask you to come for an interview so that you and the Foodbank can be comfortable with what you are being asked to do. After a successful interview you will be asked to attend Trussell Trust training at a date to be organised.
