Step 2 - Click here to complete our volunteering enquiry form
Our Volunteer Co-ordinator, Cassie Leicester, will then contact you for an informal chat or email conversation. She is in the office on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Please note that due to the volume of enquiries you may not get an immediate reply, especially at busy times of the year. However, Cassie will always endeavour to follow up volunteer enquiries within seven working days. If you haven't heard back within this time please phone us on 01392 202092.
Step 3 - Interview
You'll be invited to attend an informal interview to chat through the options. This is our chance to learn all about you so we can match you to the right volunteer role to suit your interests and skills.
Step 4 - Application and references
At the interview we will give you an application pack to take away so you can decide if you would like to proceed with an application.
Please note: because of the sensitive nature of the work we do, we will ask you for two references. Some roles also require a DBS background check. For more info on DBS checks, click here to visit the DBS website.
Step 5 - Induction and start date
Once your application has been processed we will contact you to arrange your start date. As part of your induction you will be asked to attend an Introduction to Age UK Exeter training session. This is an informal and interactive session which aims to give you information and tools to help you in your volunteer role.
The application process varies for everyone but we hope to get you started as soon as possible.
Age Positive: rather than talk about ‘the elderly’, ‘pensioners’ or ‘OAPs’, which can be excluding or have negative connotations, we use the term ‘older people’. Age UK Exeter is committed to helping people love later life.
