Volunteering Opportunities

Bassetlaw Food Bank would not function without the time and dedication of our volunteers. We offer a friendly and supportive environment for those who work with us. If you want to help our mission then there are several different ways you can get involved:

  • Warehouse volunteers who sort donations and make up food parcels in our collection centre.
  • Volunteer drivers who deliver food parcels and collect donations.
  • Fundraisers who participate in our events.
  • Community champions or coordinate collections in their local area.

Unfortunately due to Covid safety restrictions in our warehouse we are not currently recruiting new volunteers. We will update our website and social media when this changes.

Trustee Vacancies

 Our volunteer trustees deliver a crucial strategic role to help guide and govern Bassetlaw Food Bank by contributing to active discussions with the Board of Trustees and the Food Bank Manager to give direction and shape strategy.

The role will provide you with the opportunity for a great deal of experience and satisfaction, to develop your skills and utilise your expertise and knowledge.

You might run a small business or have useful knowledge and skills gained from your work or personal life that you’d like to share, or have ‘lived-in’ experience?

 We’re looking for people to get involved in leading our charity and to help us develop our services for people in our communities who need them and to secure the vital resources we need to go forward.

We offer an induction to the role of a Trustee. You’ll need to be available for Trustee Board meetings held bi-monthly on Tuesday evenings, together with regular communications and additional ‘Sub-committee’ activities, generally held monthly. This is a volunteer role but reasonable expenses are reimbursed.
