here to help


Our clients benefit a great deal from the knowledge, experience and expertise of volunteers. And we couldn’t run our charity shop, the Cairn Centre in Kirkcaldy, without the kind people who generously donate their time.

Volunteering in our shop will give you retail experience and immense rewards in seeing exactly how Trust in Fife helps local people.

We’re also looking for help behind the scenes and out on the road to assist drivers running our collection and delivery service.

If you’re looking for an immensely rewarding use of your time, get in touch via And if you need encouragement to join us, perhaps it’s best to hear directly from some of our invaluable volunteers.
