The charitable work of Tools with a Mission is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world for livelihood creation. We send around 20 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year. To do this we rely on a national volunteer workforce and welcome people of all ages and abilities and of any faith and no faith.
We do this because we want to support local people supporting their own communities through sustainable livelihood creating projects. We believe there is dignity through work and the ability to provide for yourself and your family. We believe entire communities can be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment.
Whilst we do not have a centre in your area we have several roles which are Home Based and needed all over the UK

About the Volunteer Role
The role of the TWAM speaker is to talk to groups in your local community leaving them with the challenge to support TWAM through tool collections, financial provision or by volunteering. The groups you speak to will be diverse in nature and could include churches, schools, Rotary Clubs and many others.
The role is available throughout England, Wales and Scotland as we seek to grow our speaker network. You will be speaking in your general geographical area but how far you go is up to you as you are free to accept or decline talk requests as you wish.
The role will generally be needed for the dates and times the group is looking for so could be daytime, evening or weekends, although there may be some flexibility and you do not have to accept a speaking engagement.
Typical tasks may include: Taking calls and emails from members of the public and arranging talk engagements. Preparing a presentation and ensuring you have sufficient supplies of all literature you may need. Carrying out the talk, leaving groups with the challenge to support TWAM.
Passing on any donations made by the group to Head Office for thank you letters to be prepared.
If tools have been provided, arrange for the local collector or TWAM van to pick up from you or follow up in a few weeks and arrange pick up if a collection is being made.
