Volunteering

We rely on volunteers to help us provide all our services, whether visiting older people at home, helping in our office or our day centres... It's a great way to spend a few hours a week and make the world go around!

Norfolk Will Help

Age UK Norwich is pleased to be partnering with four of Norfolk's leading charities - Nelson's Journey, The Benjamin Foundation, The Big C and Norfolk and Norwich Association for the Blind to launch a new project – ‘Norfolk Will Help’.

  • Life Stories Exhibition’ by Age UK Norwich

    ‘Life Stories’ – is an exciting exhibition focusing on a volunteer project run by Age UK Norwich which aims to capture older people's history in words, pictures and sounds. These important moments form a portable record which will promote a better sense of understanding and care. The exhibition will be moving to the first floor of the N&N University hospital at the end of November for 3 months

    September is Alzheimer’s 
    Awareness Month, and at Age UK Norwich we will be doing what 
    we can to help improve understanding, knowledge and 
    acceptance of this dementia.
    Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia - about 40% of cases.

  • We’re starting well!

    Happy New Year everyone! I realise it probably feels too late - but my general rule is it is OK to make the greeting up until Easter, as long as it is used at the first opportunity.

    We have been blessed with remarkably mild weather for much of the winter so far, with very few cold days, the slightest sprinkle of snow and thankfully none of the dreadful flooding that has made life miserable in other parts of the UK. 

    We’re starting well!
