Details of Role: 

We are looking for volunteer Clothes Sorters to come and join our team :) 

At Aid Box Community's ‘Free Shop’ in Bristol, we make a difference to the daily lives of refugees and asylum seekers by providing free essential living items, along with a safe and welcoming space.

This volunteer role provides an opportunity for you to help us sort through the clothes donations that we receive, to ensure that our service users receive good quality, good condition, clean items.


       4 ½ hours per week on one of the following days:

  • Tuesdays 10.45 – 3.15pm

  • Wednesdays 10.45 – 3.15pm

  • Thursdays 10.45 – 3.15pm

     *6 Months Commitment necessary*

What’s involved?

  • Sorting and organising clothing donations.

  • Quality control: ensuring that we only keep the most appropriate items, with the rest being sorted for use or recycling elsewhere.

  • Washing and drying clothes when necessary.

  • Keep the shelves and boxes tidy and looking lovely!

  • Ensure donations and boxes are not obstructing pathways.

  • At times when there are no clothing donations to sort you would pitch in to assist in other areas of hub where appropriate.

  • You will work with the support and direction of the Aid Team Coordinator.

We’d like you to:

  • Be flexible and have a willingness to get stuck in

  • Enjoy being part of a small team

  • Be a positive, committed and enthusiastic team player

  • Have good organisational and communication skills

  • Be passionate about supporting refugees and asylum seekers
