In order to volunteer for us, you have to join our cooperative and be a member.
What will I get?
You will be part of the cooperative and hence have the possibility to participate in the strategic future of Filling Good, typically through the different consultations that the board is hosting with its members, and to vote at the yearly AGM.
Plus, the more volunteering hours you dedicate the greater the discount you get in the shop:
1) If you volunteer for one shift per month then you get a 10% discount.
2) If you volunteer for two shifts or more per week (for 4 weeks in a row on a rolling basis) you qualify for a 20% discount.
Great! So how can I volunteer?
Before you can volunteer you need to become a member of the Filling Good co-op. To get started simply fill in our membership form.
Who can become a member?
Any individual over the age of 16, a corporate body, or a nominee of an unincorporated body, firm, or partnership can become a member.
We also accept teenagers between the ages of 13 and 16, as long as their parent/carer has a membership. This entitles them to volunteer in the shop and enables their family to benefit from the 10% rebate, for those volunteers who complete one shift every 4 weeks.
So, if you're age 13 or over and want to volunteer get in touch.
Do I need to pay to be a member?
Yes, membership costs £10/year, financial participation and open membership being two of our cooperative principles. More information on the cooperative principles below!
How do I get started?
Complete the membership form online or in the shop, we promise this only takes a couple of minutes.
Next transfer your £10 annual membership fee (or pay this in-store).
We’ll then send you a welcome email with all the info you need to start volunteering with us; from online training to access to the shop rota.
