Mustard Tree believes in a Greater Manchester where everybody has the opportunity to be a connected, valued and contributing member of society. We hope to achieve this by tackling both the causes and consequences of poverty and homelessness. This means we support people from a variety of backgrounds, in drastically different circumstances. We create opportunities for people to help themselves through both immediate support: food, clothing, furniture, toiletries and long term opportunities: classes, clubs, activities and training.
For Mustard Tree to be able to meet the drastically increased demand, we’re always after volunteers across two areas:
1) On site in Ancoats and Salford, helping out of the day in areas like our Food Club, Community Shop, Warehouse, food delivery, Driver’s Mates, Helpdesk, Reception and facilities management – one or two volunteers in each role to bolster our staff and make sure our offer is comprehensive and personable. This can be individuals, giving up a day a week, or coming in as a group to tackle a specific task.
2) Supporting, leading or setting up one of our classes, clubs, activities and events. Anyone with skills, hobbies, or interests in any area, from textiles, to yoga, to computer skills, is encouraged to get in touch to discuss.
