What volunteering roles are there?
Set up a new Hygiene Bank in your area
This role involves setting up a new Hygiene Bank Project in your area and managing the whole process. Three team members is the minimum recommended starting number. Usually one person is the nominated project coordinator for administration purposes but together the team set up drop off points, collect and sort donations, deliver them to mapped local community partners, fundraise and engage in community activities to raise awareness of the charity.Setting up a hygiene bank is a unique opportunity to gain a whole range of skills and experience, make new friends and gain the satisfaction of leading and working in a team that makes a real difference in your community.
Projects are required to make a set up contribution of £600 and this helps towards the costs of printing and delivering all assets and on-going support from Head Office. This contribution can be raised via fundraising.
Boots Store Support
We are extending our roll-out with Boots UK. This role involves being your local Boots Store primary liaison, picking up donations from our Collection Bin and delivering them locally. You may be working as part of an existing Hygiene Bank Project or be working independently. If working independently, your main support will come from head office.
Volunteer with an existing Hygiene Bank Project
Contact your local Hygiene Bank project to support the Project Coordinator with whatever is needed, anything from setting up additional drop offs to grow the project, collecting, sorting or delivering donations to community partners or maybe social media. Contact details for each project are listed on the Give Products page. Put you postcode into the search option to find your nearest Bank.
Head Office Support
Do you have a skill you can offer Head Office? For example, we have people working in administration, marketing, social media, website, copywriting, PR, fundraising, schools and community engagement and participation. This is a remote working role. If you can help, please email us with details of your experience.
Compassion and justice are values that underpin our society. We believe in helping each other out when we’re having a tough time and that is the model of The Hygiene Bank. A grass roots community initiative helping those in that same community that are struggling.
