Volunteers Needed

Touchstones Life Skills Development Volunteer

Would you enjoy supporting an older person in the Harrogate District to learn new skils and help them share their own 'know how' with others?


When an older person loses a partner through bereavement they not only lose their lifetime companion but in many cases they lose the person who has shared daily chores and larger tasks too.  As a Life Skills Development Volunteer you could make a real diffference to an older person's life, working with them to enable them to develop practical skills, good self esteem and confidence, whilst helping to reduce the feelings of isolation and loneliness.


We welcome volunteers on a weekly basis or on a rota system.  Full training and support is given to all our volunteers.

If you are interested in joining the our team then please contact  at Age UK North Yorkshire on 01423 530 628 or email
