Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering at The Felix Project!

Volunteers are vital in supporting Felix with rescuing, preparing and delivering surplus food to community organisations who provide for Londoners facing food insecurity.

For every hour you volunteer at The Felix Project, we can deliver approximately 200 meals to Londoners in need. Your support is vital to helping us fight food waste and hunger.

About Group Volunteering

Over the last six months, we have received many requests from companies to volunteer as part of employee engagement and CSR initiatives. While this interest and support is hugely appreciated, we run a 'partner first' process when booking groups. In the main, this means our strategic partners get priority bookings followed by our corporate supporters. Any remaining available shifts in the volunteer rota are then offered to our wider mailing list of non-partner companies and groups.

Get involved with Group Volunteering!

We release our availability for each quarter in waves, allowing our strategic and key partners priority booking before we offer volunteer opportunities to our wider group volunteer mailing list.

Green Scheme is an A to B collection and delivery service, offering a range of walking/cycling volunteer shifts in Central London. Most shifts are 1-2 hours in duration.

Charges & Cancellations

We suggest a donation for £50 per volunteer. This helps cover the cost of resources associated with hosting Group Volunteers including staff time, refreshments, and personal protective equipment (aprons, hairnets, steel toe capped boots, hi-viz jackets).

Cancellations

Indicator

About cancellations

Cancellations can have a detrimental impact on our operations; without sufficient volunteers we simply cannot rescue and deliver enough food to the organisations who rely on us. Therefore, we ask groups to stay committed to their shift date and number of spaces requested. Please bear this in mind when booking your volunteering dates.

Indicator

Our cancellation policy

Cancellations made four weeks or more in advance will be given the option to reschedule, subject to available dates.

Cancellations made between four and two weeks in advance will not be given the option to reschedule, but will not incur additional charges.

Complete shift cancellation within two weeks of a shift will incur a charge of £50 +VAT per head to cover additional operational costs incurred due to late cancellation of group volunteer bookings.

Indicator

Further information

Please note that Felix reserves the right to reject a booking if an organisation has cancelled on more than one occasion. This is to safeguard our operations, which provide a critical service to over 1,000 community organisations across London.

We strongly suggest that group organisers consider creating a waiting list for a shift, to backfill any drop outs, avoiding the charity and its beneficiaries being let down last minute.
