    This opportunity takes place between 01 Jan 2020 and 31 Aug 2022 Closing date for applications is 31 Jul.

    Do you want to change somebody's life? If you think you have the skills to support digitally excluded people to learn basics of using computers and the internet, we'd like to recruit you as a Digital Champion. Digital exclusion is a serious issue that restricts a person's ability to stay in touch with friends and family, find work and the best deals for goods and services, and remain an active member of their community. What are Digital Champions?Digital Champions teach people the skills and confidence to use computers and the internet by themselves, and become digitally included. Heeley Trust is a community organisation that deploys volunteer Digital Champions in venues across Sheffield, changing lives and strengthening communities. You don’t need to be a computer expert, or have any qualifications in IT, to be a Digital Champion. You need to be confident with computers, but much more important are patience, reliability and excellent communication skills. Working as a Digital Champion is fun and rewarding, a good way to meet people, and looks great on your CV. Heeley Trust supports their Digital Champions with training and is happy to provide references and letters of commendation to volunteers seeking employment.

    Interested in cooking, helping others cook healthy food on a budget, and connecting with people? Want to make a difference? Can you spare 2 hours a week for 2 to 3 weeks to help someone? Here's an opportunity to work with a leading food poverty organisation to change the lives of participants and even improve your own kitchen skills! **New courses starting all year around, sign up when it's convenient for you**We need volunteer cook mentors to guide participants through a short virtual course which includes essential cooking skills, making recipes and learning meal planning tips using the trademark ingredients bags that we deliver to their homes. Over the 2-3 week virtual course, volunteer cook mentors are responsible for keeping in contact with a small group of students in a friendly chat, providing practical and moral support, cooking guidance, motivation, feedback and encouragement, and managing peer to peer interaction. All of this is really essential to them being able to complete the course and learn valuable life-changing skills - your role is incredibly important! The role is remote and flexible, you can do it from home and fit it around your studies. Could this be you? Please register your interest!

    Bags of Taste is an award-winning food education programme working with people in food poverty to improve their diets, finances and physical and mental wellbeing by cooking tasty, healthy, take-away beating meals from scratch for just £1 a head. 

    Our free cooking and food budgeting classes are virtual. Instead of face-to-face teaching, we deliver our courses virtually via WhatsApp, Facebook, email, and phone. We provide participants with free ingredients to help them complete the course.

    We also need volunteers to deliver essential ingredient bags to participants - if you have a car or other mode of transport good for delivering shopping, this is a really great way you can help out. This will involve collecting between 1-3 bags from our pick-up location and transporting them to the participants' homes. If this sounds like something you'd enjoy, please register your interest!
