Volunteers play an important role in helping Age UK East London support older people. They bring a variety of skills, experiences and perspectives which enhance our work and help to support older people. Without them, we wouldn't be able to delivery such a range of services.

Age UK East London has a wide range of volunteering opportunities for people with a little spare time to offer.
