Volunteer

There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer for Age UK Camden and right now we really need people who live in the NW6 and NW2 area to befriend people living with Dementia.  We are also looking for help in our Leather Lane Shop, and for volunteers to escort older people to their medical appointments as part of our Care Navigator service.

Care navigators are trained professionals who work within health and social care to make sure that patients get the care and support they need; Our focus on supporting people to access community and voluntary sector services that help them to remain independent and well. Care Navigators are based within GP practices the borough with outreach from these ‘hubs’ to all practices in the borough.
