Who can apply?

Our volunteers come from all kinds of backgrounds and vary in age. Depending on the type of activities you want to volunteer for you may need certain qualifications or training.

We ask that you are able to make a regular commitment; for example, Food Angels would require a minimum of two deliveries every month.  Each lunchtime delivery will take about an hour and a half. Could you give up one or two days or an afternoon during the summer to drive our minibus?

You will have to undergo background checks as you will be working with vulnerable people and the safety of those people is our priority. Although we are keen to build a big team of volunteers we will not accept anyone that could pose a risk.

Successful applicants will need to undertake certain training to meet health and safety legislation and compliance requirements. You will get full support from our team and we are there to help you get the most out of volunteering.

We have over 60 volunteers at Harrogate Food Angels who help us deliver meals and always go that ‘extra mile’ to make a difference.
