What You'll Do: 

hen you arrive on-site you will be given a clear induction as to how everything works.  Checking and sorting items is an extremely important part of our work as we are an organisation giving gifts from one family to another, so they should be of the highest quality.

  • Checking the donated stock that comes in and ensuring items are good enough quality

Why You'll Love It: 

If you want to make a real difference in your community, volunteering at Little Village provides this opportunity. Apart from helping other families, we know that there are so many positive benefits to volunteering, including getting out of the house and meeting new people in a fun and friendly environment, learning new skills and gaining confidence and self-esteem.

  • How a charity / not-for-profit organisation operates
  • The factors contributing to child poverty in the UK
  • What needs to change in order to end child poverty in the UK
  • Working as part of a team
  • How to support and empower families 
What We're Looking For:
