We are currently looking for volunteers for the following roles:

General Volunteers

Can you help with some of the following?

  • looking after one or more drop-off points (collecting donated items and getting them to our Hub in Balerno)
  • sorting donated items
  • processing referrals at the Hub (i.e. picking stock to make up packs, listing what is needed, etc)
  • shopping for items that are needed
  • collecting referrals from the Hub and delivering them to the referrers around Edinburgh
  • helping at fundraising events and/or organising fundraisers


General Support

You can also support us in an ad-hoc way, for example:

  • Gather up donations of clothes amongst your friends or colleagues, or the mums at the school gate, your fitness class, toddler group, etc.
  • Fundraise for us. How about having friends round for a cuppa (or a large glass of wine or three) and ask for donations, run a wee tombola, play silly games with prizes. If you’re feeling brave you could have a fancy dress theme (school uniform, perhaps?).
  • Adopt us as your Charity of the Year at work or school. How about a school tie day at work?
  • Knit warm hats, gloves and scarves and pop them in one of our donation points.
  • Tell your friends all about us!
