Get Involved

There are plenty of ways to get involved at Fair Trader and help us make a difference. Volunteer at the Holmfirth store, become a member, work with us or simply make sustainable changes in your local community. 


By volunteering at Fair Trader, you will be helping families around the world. No two volunteers are the same! Some volunteer at the same time weekly or fortnightly; some do their role at home, as and when they can; some help at events.

We need people who are helpful and friendly, keen to share skills and learn new ones, are reliable and trustworthy, and happy to be part of a team.

  • Help members of your community
  • Develop new skills and confidence
  • Gain valuable work experience and references for employment
  • Make new friends
