VOLUNTEER WITH US!

Volunteers

Volunteers are vital to Transition Dundee. From sharing skills in our workshops to collecting food donations for our Community Fridge, our volunteers help us to support lots of local people and build a more sustainable, low-impact community.

 

We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities for all ages, so no matter how much time you have to give or what your skills are we would love to hear from you.  If you're interested in volunteering, read the descriptions below and fill out the enquiry form - we will get back to you as soon as possible!

“The fridge helped me a lot to begin with as a customer during a time of severe mental health problems and being out of work. It gave me a purpose to my day, I enjoyed the walk and the chats with the volunteers who I began to get to know. It also helped financially and I got back to enjoying food and cooking again after being quite unwell. This led to me becoming a volunteer for the fridge and subsequently at the wardrobe... also to meeting many visitors who I see out and about in the local community now which is nice. Volunteering gives me a purpose and a great deal of satisfaction - it also allows me to have social contact, something which I do find really difficult but having a clear role helps with this.”
