Give Help


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 the life of someone in crisis.

We are currently looking for:

Warehouse logistics volunteer

We need help to weigh, sort and store donated food before it’s made into parcels for clients to collect. You could help in this vital work to ensure we have the right food available at all times.

Role description here.

Signposting volunteer

This role involves providing direct support to people referred to the food bank centre. They will sit down and chat with food bank visitors, make them feel comfortable, find out what further support they may need and signpost them to other services or groups where appropriate. 

Role description here.

Other roles we have are:

Voucher coordinator

Foodbanks work with front line agencies who in turn refer clients to foodbanks. Some foodbanks have over 100 referral partners and in this role you will be coordinating the issuing and distribution of vouchers to these agencies. Once the vouchers are redeemed the data they contain needs to be added to our central database. Full training and support is available.

Helping at a foodbank centre

Meet clients and give out food parcels or  just help prepare food parcels for clients. Have an informal chat with clients over a cup of tea, to discuss their situation and signpost to further support.

Assist with our supermarket collections

Usually at weekends so may be accessible for those who work full-time. We hand out shopping lists to customers in supermarkets with the request to donate one or more items from the list. We then collect these food items, thank the customers and liaise with the warehouse for collection.

Transport of donated food

We have 8 distribution centres in the Wrexham area which all need to be restocked during the week from our central warehouse. We also have collection bins in Wrexham Tesco; Cefn Mawr Tesco ; Wrexham Sainsburys; Wrexham ASDA and Lidl all of  which need to be emptied on a regular basis and donations taken to the warehouse. During our supermarket collections we need to transport food to the warehouse as well.
