Volunteers help in nearly every aspect of our work and we could not provide such a range of services and amount of help to older people without their valuable input.

Volunteering

Age UK Coventry is a local charity providing a wide range of services for people aged 50+. 

We currently need to recruit more volunteers:

  • Friendship volunteers to visit lonely and isolated older people at home offering them friendship and companionship, and 
  • Volunteers to support our social groups for adults with learning difficulties and volunteers to assist us with fundraising, general administration and outreach services.   

Full training is provided and volunteer travel expenses reimbursed.  

Many of the services we provide would not run without our dedicated team of over 320 volunteers aged from 18-90.

A wide variety of services are offered both from our city centre office and throughout the city.

Volunteers, in their diversity of age, experience, cultural background and involvement bring to Age UK Coventry’s work a value which adds to our understanding of and response to older people’s needs.

What's in it for you?

By volunteering you will be helping older people in Coventry to remain living at home, independently for as long as they wish.

Age UK Coventry promotes best practice in volunteering: In  return for your support we will offer you full reimbursement of travel expenses, experience of supporting people, make you feel part of our organisation, training and support and of course, fun. Your time and commitment can be as little as an hour a week.

If you would like to offer your time and services please download the forms below. You can either drop these into our head office or email them to: claire@ageukcoventry.org.uk

Following receipt of satisfactory references, we will be pleased to offer you an informal interview to discuss what type of voluntary work you may like to undertake.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact our Volunteer Development Officer using the details below.

We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you soon.
