Shelter Scotland helps over half a million people a year struggling with bad housing or homelessness – and we campaign to prevent it in the first place. We’re here so no-one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own. The Shelter Charity Shop raises vital funds towards Shelters work offering confidential advice and support to anyone affected by homelessness/housing issues.
We are looking for volunteers to help us in our stock room helping with tasks such as preparing the stock for sale e.g.: sorting, pricing and steaming away the creases!
In addition, we also have opportunities for people who wish to volunteer helping us with customer service-till operation, window displays etc. There are further excellent volunteer opportunities for Volunteer Supervisors if you would like to take on some extra responsibility and perform tasks such as refunds, voids and cash handling.
No experience is needed as we provide full training and good support to all volunteers. This is ongoing until you are confident in the role and you will also receive further training on any new procedures which arise.
It is an enjoyable place to volunteer where you make a real difference. It also looks very impressive on a cv.

A well-organised booking service and record-keeping must be maintained in order to minimise waiting time for people requiring assistance. Appropriate records and statistics are also kept for monitoring/evaluation. The volunteer will be required to introduce customers to equipment and after appropriate training, train customers to use the equipment if required.
Maintenance of the equipment is essential to provide Shopmobility customers safe, clean and reliable equipment which can be used in the knowledge that we provide a service on which they can rely. Maintenance involves: battery charging, tyre pressures, checking lights etc.
N.B. Due to the location, all volunteers and staff must be very alert and aware of the dangers involved with moving vehicles at all times.

Once repaired and made roadworthy, the bikes are sold on with prices ranging between £5 and £30! We also offer bike repairs and training on how to cycle safely. In addition, we provide refurbished bikes to various communities in developing countries enabling children to cycle to school.
