Why Volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to improve your skills, meet new people, experience  interesting things and make a difference. Wales has a long tradition of people giving up their time and using their expertise to support and the grow Fair Trade movement.

Why not get involved and help spread the word!

What can I do?

Volunteer for your local group

Fair Trade groups are the backbone of the Fair Trade movement in Wales. Representing a cross section of the community, they work hard to gain and keep Fairtrade status for their area. It gives you the chance get to know your community better by taking part in fun campaigns activities and meeting regularly with other group members to plan your campaign.  You’ll learn about the huge impact Fair Trade is making for over 7 million people worldwide and help spread the word. All this and it’s a lot of fun too!

To find out about your nearest group check out our Fairtrade Towns and Counties page which has the contact details you need.

What the volunteers say…

Sharron Hardwick, School Speaker“The great thing about volunteering is that I’m involved in something I love: Fair Trade! It does not matter what your skills are there is always something you can do. If you have a passion for fairness and want to use your skills and talents I highly recommend that you give it a go because together we can make a difference!”
