Why has Hull & Humber FareShare joined Working Voices?
Fareshare has joined the working voice initiative to support, improve and raise the profile of mental health and physical wellbeing in the workplace.
Fareshare believes staff/Volunteer health and well-being is essential and Fareshare is truly committed to supporting our valued volunteers and staff’s emotional and physical wellbeing.

Fareshare wants to empower staff and volunteers to take ownership of their own health by speaking out and letting their voices be heard through the working voice enterprise. Staff and volunteers will have access to free services provided by Hull CCG to improve health and wellbeing for all.
About Hull & Humber FareShare
Goodwin Development Trust operates FareShare Hull and Humber is the area’s regional branch of the UK’s largest food redistribution charity. We have 45 Volunteers and 7 employed staff. We save 407 tonnes of good surplus food from right across the food supply chain and redistribute it to 135 charities and community groups throughout the region.
These charities provide meals as part of their services to people in need – such as children’s breakfast clubs, day clubs for older people, domestic violence refuges, homeless shelters and drug and alcohol rehab units.
In 2018/19 we provided enough food for 904,871 meals (worth over £1,011,200 to the charity sector in savings), which helped to feed 13,696 people every week.
