Volunteering

What you do for us.

Our volunteers play a major role in our operations and have helped us become the success we are today; we value the support and the skills that they provide.

Those who volunteer with us and give their time see it as a win-win situation as they have the opportunity to gain experience of customer service, logistics  support and communication skills, learn more about retailing, and work as part of busy and committed team.

If you have some spare time, then you can help us make a big difference. As well as supporting a local charity that helps people in need, you will be playing a part in protecting the environment by stopping reusable furniture and electrical goods going to landfill.

The help we need.

Various hours and days are available, and we welcome volunteers who want to come for a few weeks or stay for longer.

We urgently need volunteers who have experience in the following areas:

  • Administration and sales

  • Appliance repairs

  • PAT testing

  • Furniture up-cycling

  • Social media maintenance.

  • General Warehouse

 

We welcome people with a wide range of skills and experiences so, if you have other skills and experience that may be beneficial to our charity, we may have a role for you.

What’s the next step?

Please call us on 01992 578222 or e-mail Esther@eppingreuse.org.uk so that you can tell us about yourself, we can explain more about our operations and which roles might suit you. If you are interested in volunteering with us we will send you an application form for you to complete and return to us.

 

Do you want to help people in need?  Do you care about the environment?

Epping Forest ReUSE needs additional trustees.

The charity provides furniture and household appliances to people in need by selling at a low price, giving a discount to people on income related benefits and giving items free of charge to people In exceptional need, usually referred by agencies.  Most goods are donated and their reuse contributes to our care for the environment.

Three new trustees are currently required. We are looking for people with experience in the areas of fund raising, marketing, health and safety, property management, and related legal matters.  In particular, we need someone who can work alongside our Treasurer in order to succeed him.
