Volunteering at Trade
The work done at Trade by people offering their time, commitment and experience as volunteers is vital to the continuation of the charity.
People volunteer to do all sorts of roles from helping us out at stalls and events to making up condom packs or becoming a member of our board of trustees. We train all our volunteers in the role that they choose and we give them support to make sure they are happy with the work that they are doing.
Why do people volunteer?
People volunteer to help us for all sorts of reasons:
- Giving something back, because they have received our help and now want to use their experience to help others
- Gaining skills to help get them into a particular area of paid work or study
- Meeting people
- Trying something new
