Volunteer as a Shop Assistant

Can you help us as a volunteer in one of our retail shops?

If so, we can offer you a volunteer position in your local area, with flexible shifts available. No experience is needed, just a willingness to have fun and get stuck in.

We have 13 fabulous charity shops including the new Midsummer Place store and our furniture store in Kiln Farm.

We are particularly keen to speak to people who may be able to offer some time on weekends as part of a regular rota. You’ll receive full training.

Your role could include:

    • Operating a till
    • Helping customers
    • Sorting stock
    • Filling shelves
    • At our furniture shops, we are looking for volunteers who can undertake manual handling to move items of furniture.

We have limited Duke of Edinburgh places available in some stores.


To book a visit and find out more about becoming a volunteer, please contact your local shop.

We can only provide the care we do thanks to the incredible generosity of our community, through their continued volunteering, fundraising and donations throughout the year. Your donation will enable us to continue providing care and support to those facing a life-limiting diagnosis, and to support their loved ones.
