Want to volunteer, gain experience, and help charities to earn income that supports vital services? Maybe you know someone who might? The Charity Retail Association (CRA) has launched a new initiative to match potential volunteers with charity shops when they reopen on or after 15 June.

Interested members of the public can sign up online to volunteer in a very simple and short process. CRA hope that young people in particular will put themselves forward, as many older volunteers could remain shielded for some time.

Charity retailers with vacancies will also be able to search a database and identify potential volunteers according to their location and specific charity interest. Find out more.
