Who can volunteer?
Anyone who has time to spare and would like to use it to benefit a charity.
What does volunteering involve?
You may be asked to sort donations, price goods, work on the till, and create window displays. If you have experience in other areas, tell the shop manager as it can often be put to use. Volunteers get to make new friends, become part of a team and learn new skills while raising money for charity. Being a volunteer need not interfere with your other commitments. Many shops ask for a regular commitment of a set number of hours per week that can work around your schedule.
I’m on benefits – can I volunteer?
On Incapacity Benefit? You can volunteer without payment being affected. If you claim Job Seeker’s Allowance you should not be affected if you are still ‘actively seeking and available for work’. Whichever benefit you receive, inform your benefits agency if doing voluntary work.
Under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006, charity shops have a legal duty to protect children and vulnerable adults. These include individuals who are on the children’s and/or adults barred list working with these vulnerable groups. When staff and volunteers undertake Regulated Activities, they are subject to a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check. DBS is just one of several measures that charity shops use to protect their staff and volunteers within their work places. We expect our members to take any allegations of harmful behaviour seriously and take appropriate action.

By allowing the individuals and families to come and choose we feel this will give them some control back in their life’s as some domestic abuse situation can be controlled by the perpator.
HVDV is also giving individuals a place where they can volunteer and do training to make a difference to their own education and help individuals who have suffered domestic abuse in the local area and a chance on the ladder back into paid work.
HVDV will also be Eco Friendly as it will also help less going into landfills by being re-used and re-cycled.
