Supporting the progression of our volunteers
Our volunteers come from a broad cross-section of the local community, from students to retirees, small business owners to job-seekers. Many have been homeless or struggled with mental health conditions or addiction, and working with us is the first step to developing the necessary skills and confidence to return to regular work.
We provide a positive and safe working environment and offer all our volunteers the opportunity to develop important work skills, including training in food hygiene, manual handling and fork-lift truck driving.
“When I came here I had all sorts of problems; FareShare helped sort everything out. If I didn’t spend my time here I’d probably be in prison or worse. It really has changed my life coming here.” – Jon, volunteer for 5 years
