Why We Exist

There are so many people out there who dream of getting into employment but face barriers to fulfilling their potential. We exist to help people overcome these barriers!

Whenever you purchase from us we use it as an opportunity to give employment training and skills to our team of volunteers. Our volunteers come from many walks of life, many have learning disabilities, mental health concerns or are young people getting a taste for work for the first time.

Each volunteer has personal training objectives to help them build skills towards employment. Our volunteers then attend special training courses in areas of confidence building and customer service to build these vital skills for the work place. We then offer to give guidance on interview and CV preparation to give our volunteers the best chance at getting into work once they are ready. If you want to join our team of volunteers, you can apply here on the Treasure Seekers website, we would love to meet you!

We sell Fair Trade and Ethically Sourced gifts to reflect our belief that each person deserves meaningful work, wherever they live and whoever they are! We are also committed to providing high quality gifts and excellent service, so that our business is worthy of the huge potential of each of our volunteers who work in it.

We are part of a wider Kingfisher Treasure Seekers family: a Social Enterprise, running many groups and activities to empower vulnerable and disadvantaged people to "become the best version of themselves". 

Thank you for helping to empower the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Gloucester, every penny we make is spent on this vision!
