Help to keep our charity shop stock moving and be a disability gamechanger in your local community.
About your role
You will support the Northwich charity shop by collecting stock donations from people’s houses and bringing it to the store. You will use your own vehicle to drive stock to the store, working as part of a team with shop staff and volunteers.
You’ll be helping us to raise charity income, funding our work to achieve everyday equality for disabled people. As a Volunteer for Scope you can take pride in knowing you’ve made a difference to disabled people and their families at a time of need.
Where and when
You will be operating between our Northwich shop and collection locations in the local area. We’d love your help for a minimum of two hours per week, but you can talk to our shop staff about how much time you can give.
You don’t need special skills or experience to volunteer, just a positive attitude and a friendly approach to chatting with other people. There may be some heavy lifting required on some occasions.
You must have your own car or van and a clean driving licence. You will need to let your insurer know that you’re using your car for volunteering (this won’t affect your insurance costs).
You’ll need to be reliable and able to work as part of a friendly team.
