retailTRUST

Type of organisation: charity

Location: Barnet

retailTRUST is the only charity that looks after all three million people working in retail, plus those retired from the sector and its associated businesses. We provide help and support to people whatever challenges they face. While retail offers unparalleled opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds, it has many people on or near the minimum wage, which currently stands at £6.31 for workers aged 21 and over. When something goes wrong, these people can be very vulnerable. retailTRUST has services in place to make sure that we can be there for those who need the support and assistance.

What will I be doing?

We would like for a group of volunteers to come to our estate and run a coffee morning/tea and cake event with our elderly residents. Volunteers can bake cakes, cookies and treats to bring in to the residents, then sit with them and have a chat or potentially do an activity like a sing-along or watching a film together.
