New website matches would-be volunteers with charity shop roles

By June 9, 2020National News

From UK Fundraising 

Members of the public interested in volunteering in a charity shop once they re-open this month can now register their interest on a new site launched by The Charity Retail Association and Wil-U. 

Anyone interested in volunteering can now go to www.charityshopvolunteer.org.uk (opens in a new tab) to sign up through filling up a short form on their details and preferences. Charity retailers seeking volunteer staff can search the database and identify potential volunteers according to their location and specific charity interest. 

The platform has been built free of charge by tech company Wil-U. 

Charity shops can re-open from 15 June providing they have implemented proper safety measures in regards to Covid-19. Some charities, including Oxfam, Barnardo’s, Cancer Research UK, and British Heart Foundation, have already said that they will start to do so this month.
