Be a shop volunteer

Come and join our dedicated team of volunteers at your local shop

Come and join our dedicated team of volunteers at your local shop. You'll be one of over 80 shop volunteers keeping our 4 shops running and raising money to support our work. It's a great way to help children in Wales with cerebral palsy and increase your skills and make friends at the same time. We’ll give you training and support – and you can choose how much time you volunteer.

What the role can include

  • Working on the till processing sales and returns
  • Preparing stock, including sorting, steaming and pricing
  • Creating stylish window displays
  • Replenishing stock on the shop floor
  • Stocktaking and other administrative tasks
  • And of course, providing great customer service!

Benefits of volunteering

While we know that our charity shops benefit enormously from volunteering, there are also benefits for you too. Some of these include:

  • Making new friends
  • Learning new skills
  • Helping your career development
  • Reducing stress and combatting depression
  • Keeping you physically fit
  • Providing fun and fulfilment
