Summary

Are you great with people, have an eye for detail or a flair for displays? Our charity shop team would love to hear from you.

Detailed description

As a small charity our shop in Gloucester city centre is a vital way for us to raise funds to support our work.


You could help make a real difference to people in Gloucestershire by helping in our shop, or behind the scenes.


Flexible volunteer opportunities! 


Whether you can spare an hour or 4 hours, on a regular or ad hoc basis, any time you can offer will be greatly valued.


Our friendly shop team is looking for volunteers to help with sorting, steaming, and bringing a shine to displays. An hour or two’s volunteering, booked in advance, can make a big difference.


If you can support us in our Gloucester charity shop 2-4 hours weekly or fortnightly, particularly between 10.00am and 2.00pm, we’d love to hear from you. Term time only is also available. 


Ideas of things we always really appreciate volunteer help with are:

  • Tidying the books in the shop, restocking or changing the books over
  • Creating eye catching window displays
  • Creating displays in the shop on shelves
  • Washing vases and ornaments and again changing these over so there are always new things for people to discover
  • Cleaning toys so they look like new again
  • Steaming clothes to make them fresh and crease free
  • Serving customers in a helpful and friendly manner, using the till and handling cash and card transactions
  • Packing up our eBay items and labelling them


Charity shop work can be great for helping to build skills for the world of work, it's a great way to meet knew people and you'll be a champion of sustainable fashion!

About Footsteps Counselling and Care

Footsteps Counselling & Care is a charitable organisation offering compassionate counselling and care for anyone in the Gloucestershire area affected by pregnancy-related issues, the loss of a baby for any reason, traumatic birth, fertility problems and pregnancy-related mental health issues. Our vision is that anyone affected by fertility or pregnancy-related issues, traumatic birth or baby loss can access compassionate personalised support on the journey of coping with their traumatic experiences. We provide professional counselling virtually or in person, a website with an online support hub and a charity shop in Gloucester city centre. We could not do what we do without our tremendous volunteer force and the many hours they dedicate to us. There are many ways to get involved, from offering professional counselling to lending a hand in our charity shop, supporting our fundraising and events or helping behind the scenes and from home. People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some it offers the chance to give something back to the community or make a difference to the people around them. For others it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge. It is a great way to meet new people and have fun too!
