Food waste is a big issue in the UK and beyond. It’s estimated that a third of all food gets wasted. Most of this is avoidable and could have been eaten had it been better managed.

* Operate fridge during allocated opening times * Collection of food from donors
* Fridge cleaning and monitoring
* Local fridge promotion
* Assist with events to support the fridge and the local community Experience required: Interest in food. Confident and happy to work on own. Friendly and helpful manner.
The monthly female peer group is for unpaid carers who look after a relative or friend who has an illness, disability, addiction or are frail or elderly. The group allows carers to meet others in a similar situation, time out from their caring role and access support and information. The facilitator would welcome carers, encourage discussion and liaise with a member of staff to organise relevant speakers if and when requested by carers
Dumfries & Galloway Blood Bikes provide their service free of charge to the NHS, and is run entirely by dedicated volunteers who receive no compensation for their time or costs.
Duty Controllers are the unseen heroes of our team who organise hospital runs and contact on-call riders/drivers. They liaise with hospitals and riders/drivers. Quick thinking at 3am in the morning, they are able to keep calm under pressure.

Role involves delivering classes on self defence this can either be on a theoretical or practical basis. The classes can sometimes be victims who are looking to protect themselves or ethnic minority groups where sensitivity and an understanding is needed.
