Volunteer with us

Baby’s Basket is growing! 

To help us to cope the our increasing demand for our services we need another volunteer or two, to help with the following:

  • Sorting donations
  • Folding and packing away laundered clothes
  • Assisting with looking after our stores, monitoring and tidying the different sizes, types of clothes and toiletries
  • Making up pre-packed baby clothes for a variety of uses
  • Selecting clothes for baskets
  • Helping to pack our baskets for babies in need

The roles would particularly suit you if you are able to offer flexible time and respond to the varied needs of the charity. You will be someone who: enjoys keeping things neat and tidy; has an eye for detail; understand the needs and preferences of modern parents; enjoys being creative; and is able and happy to act on your own initiative after training.  Out of pocket expenses can be paid.

You should be able to easily access our base in Birchwood.

Physical and environmental information: The role does involve moving and lifting of boxes to and from shelving.  

Do you regularly travel between Lincoln and another part of Lincolnshire?

We would welcome volunteer drivers to help with occasional collections and deliveries of our baskets to other parts of the county when the health professional can't get to Lincoln.  You would be delivering to a local health centre or similar, not the parents.  

Do you understand how Facebook charity pages works?

We would welcome some support with aspects of using Facebook if there is anyone out there who can help.

Become a trustee

The trustees of Baby’s Basket would like to hear from anyone interested in becoming a trustee of the charity. The person appointed would be expected to commit to the charity’s purposes and have the necessary time and enthusiasm to work with the existing trustees in the management and direction of the charity. The role would suit someone who already has a knowledge of the work of the charity, as well as those able to offer specific skills.  The role is voluntary but expenses can be paid.
