Volunteer - Northamptonshire Emergency Welfare Group

The Emergency Welfare Group is a not-for-profit charitable organisation whose volunteers provide welfare and support to communities in times of an emergency. We are looking for volunteers to assist supporting the public during an emergency event in Northamptonshire. This includes supporting the distribution of beverages at specific locations during an emergency.


Flexibility on availability, supportive, friendly, compassionate, understanding, responsible. Locations can be throughout Northamptonshire (depending on the location of the emergency and where the emergency services call us out to assist). Any food preparation experience (and any hygiene certificate qualifications) would be great. Anyone with fundraising and social media skills would also be very appreciated.
