Get Volunteering

From helping people navigate challenges they’re facing to enabling them to make the most of their community, volunteering with Age UK Islington is a great way to know you’re making a difference.

Four ways you can volunteer

  • Office Angel

    Based in the heart of our organisation, a team of volunteers help us with everything from office tasks and data entry to greeting guests and contacting people about upcoming activities.
  • People Person

    We need people who can help with outbound catch up phone calls, one-on-one advice meetings or more regular visits with people of all ages.
  • Expert Adviser

    From IT to Finance to organising events, we can often harness the skills that volunteers have to offer, for example, either as a client IT Tutor, or to provide expert help in the running of our organisation.
  • Get Together Host

    From gardening to gadgetry, poetry to song sharing, if you have a hobby or a specialist skill you'd be willing to share - we're always on the look out for people to help host events for people to come together.

Why people volunteer

  • Daniel Jeffrys

    “The perception that you are ‘doing something for nothing’ couldn’t be further from the truth. Volunteering is one of the most rewarding things you can do and you will find that the more you put into the experience, the more you’ll get out of it.”
  • Ella Davies

    “Ideally I’d like to get every old person out, instead of them sitting at home looking at four walls. No one has to be lonely. Get Togethers are something to look forward to, and there are so many things going on in Islington.”
