Help us support families in need

Support volunteers needed for First Days in RG5

First Days Children’s Charity collects good quality, second-hand baby clothes, toys, equipment and furniture and redistributes them to support families who most need them.

We are looking for volunteer referral coordinators to help prepare packages to be distributed and really make a difference to families locally. This will involve sorting, cleaning and organising donations and putting together packs of clothing, toys and equipment to be distributed.

Full training will be given and you will work closely with our referrals team to ensure we are keeping on track with our referrals.

Ideally, we would like to find volunteers who can commit regularly from 3 to 5 hours a week on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday at our offices in Woodley. However, this is flexible – please contact us to find out more!
