Volunteer with us

Volunteers have always been at the heart of Baby Bank Network. We simply couldn’t support over 1,500 families each year without our dedicated team of volunteers giving their time, energy and skills.

Whether you’re looking for a way to meet new people, learn new skills or gain experience we would love to welcome you into the team! You will be making a real difference to vulnerable families in our community – making sure they have the things they need for their babies and children. Have a look at our current opportunities and get in touch today.

Volunteer with us

Trustee Treasurer

We are seeking a dynamic finance professional to work as part of our Board and welcome applicants from those who may not yet have worked with a charity or Board.

As Treasurer, as well as general governance, you will have specific responsibilities to oversee and support our CEO to present budgets, accounts, reports and financial statements to the Trustees. You will contribute actively to the Board of Trustees' role in giving financial direction to the organisation including overseeing financial policy, goals, targets and evaluating performance against agreed targets as we launch our new 5 year growth strategy.

We encourage candidates who can help increase the diversity of the Board so as to make our organisation more inclusive, especially those who have an interest in making a difference to the lives of families in Bristol.

The Board meets approximately every 6 weeks, usually in the evening and via MS Teams or in person. You may also have other ad hoc tasks to be undertaken in between meetings to provide advice and guidance to the leadership team on specific issues and projects and from time to time we ask Trustees to support the charity in one off fundraising events.

Further information, a role description and details of how to apply can be found here.

Warehouse Assistant Volunteer

Demand for our services is increasing and we are looking for more warehouse volunteers to sort donations and prepare items for families. If you are able to volunteer regularly for 2-3 hours a week on weekday mornings, we’d love to hear from you.

Training and support will be provided by the wider team. The most important thing is that we work together to ensure that the charity fulfills its purpose – to meet the needs of those families struggling to afford baby items.

In return we’ll offer an opportunity to:

  • Learn new skills or put existing skills to good use
  • Gain new experiences
  • Meet new people
  • Make a real difference to local families in need.

The Warehouse Assistant Volunteer role description can be found here.
