Shop Volunteering Opportunities


Our shops are at the heart of local communities raising vital funds for our fight against homelessness and bad housing - and they’re powered by our volunteers!

Suggested Involvement: It’s up to you! We have volunteers who support for one hour a week and others who volunteer more. Many people volunteer for a morning or an afternoon each week, but we’ll have a chat about your availability after you’ve applied.

Availability: The shop is open Monday - Saturday 09:00-17:00.

Location: Shop in Ramsgate, CT11 9ER

Skills and Experiences Required:

  • Welcome you with a Volunteer Handbook
  • Provide training, induction, and ongoing support from your Shop Manager to help you feel confident in your role
