Volunteer with us

Our Shelter shops simply cannot run without our incredible volunteers. If you’d like to do something valuable with your spare time, while picking up new skills and gaining retail experience, volunteering a few hours in a Shelter shop could be right for you.

Volunteering for just a few hours a week can make a huge difference. To join our fantastic team, register your interest on the Better Impact website.
