What would you be doing?

You’ll use your existing social media profile to communicate with your friends and followers and talk about the work being done by the Trussell Trust. This could be something as simple as sharing one of our news stories, liking a message from one of your local Trussell Trust food banks, or encouraging your followers to take one of our campaign actions.

We’ll send you regular emails highlighting important messages we’d like you to share and provide you with images, videos and anything else you might need to create your own messages on social media. You can also follow our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts for inspiration and to help you connect with other Trussell Trust supporters.

How would you make a difference?

You’ll use your voice and your online community to help raise awareness of our work, including helping people understand the drivers of poverty and challenging misconceptions around using a food bank. You’ll also encourage others to support our work.

By doing something as simple as sharing our posts and social media content, you’ll ensure our message goes further and is seen by many more people. This will be crucial in helping us to build a consensus to ensure that everyone can afford life’s essentials.

By posting updates and sharing content, you can help us in our mission to see a UK without the need for food banks.
