We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us launch our exciting new food delivery service, Food2You.

Roles are varied and include taking orders by telephone, shopping in the supermarket, driving the delivery van, and delivering the goods to customers at home. Full training will be provided to ensure that you feel confident and happy in your roles. It is a fantastic opportunity to make a tangible difference to the lives of older people in the community.

You can find further details of all of the Food2You volunteering opportunities - and more! - on IndeedJobs.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community.

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills. We encourage and particularly welcome applicants over the age of 50.

How much time do I need to give?

It depends on the volunteer role you are interested in. Some people give an hour a week, other people do more.

We would love to welcome you to our team in a role that you will both enjoy and find hugely rewarding, and which will greatly benefit the older people we work with.
