Working Groups are designed to focus on particular areas/topics, to keep the traffic on the Central group down to manageable levels.

They are open to all Freegle Volunteers; see here for the membership policy of the central groups.

The Working Groups Procedure document explains how the main groups carry out their business.

The current Working Groups are:

  • Freegle Funding Group - A group set up for looking at the availability of local and national funding opportunities and offering support to local groups who wish to access financial assistance [2]
  • Freegle Tech - A working group for technical discussions about tools/websites etc. Open to all FreegleUK Central members who are interested.[3]] Remit: Tech Working Group Remit
