Membership & Volunteering

We are in need of people passionate about the NFP sector and looking to come up with fundraising strategies and apply for grants. Being cheaper for the community means we rely on help from volunteers to keep our boats a float.

Why we value our volunteers
What will I be doing when I volunteer
Shop Volunteers assist staff members to help keep the Co-op running as smoothly as possible. On a typical shift, you may spend your time:
- Filling up containers and re-stocking
- Cleaning and helping to keep the shop tidy
- Welcoming and assisting customers with their shopping
- Educating customers about “how to shop Co-op”
- Develop new skills
- Connect with your community and make it a better place
- Be part of a business creating positive change
- Earn energy points that save an additional 10% on your shopping
What commitment is required
We welcome everyone who wants to volunteer, no matter what their availability is. But to make it relevant and enjoyable you should be able to commit to a minimum of 4 hours per month. This ensures that you get the most out of the experience and also that the time we invest in training you is well spent.
Many volunteers offer more time than this and we’re sure you’ll find that you will get a lot out of the experience, in addition to the extra discounts off shopping that you’ll receive!
