The Fairtrade Guernsey Steering Group was formed by volunteers with the aim of raising awareness of and support for Fairtrade in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. This focus will continue and is dependent on the support of so many people. More and more people are needed to grow the influence of Fairtrade and the main thrust is to see as much purchasing of Fairtrade products as possible in order that the benefits will accrue for Third World Producers. Our individual purchasing of Fairtrade is easily done.
But, the Steering Group is always in need of enthusiastic volunteers to help undertake the vital organising and monitoring of local activities and initiatives. If you think you might be able to help we’d be delighted to hear from you. For more information contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Everyone is invited to organise an event or an initiative that will raise awareness of Fairtrade.

The Fairtrade Guernsey Steering Group is keen to respond to requests for help.
Members are available to speak in school assemblies, lessons, youth groups, meetings, church or community events. Visits by representatives of The Fairtrade Foundation and/or overseas Producers can also sometimes be arranged during Fairtrade Fortnight.
We also have a Fairtrade school representative who can be contacted for materials and advice:
