Are you looking to learn new skills? Get experience for your CV? Or find a new use for your existing expertise?

Do you enjoy meeting people? And keeping active in your spare time?

Or do you simply want to help to raise money for a great local cause?

We do great work with over-50s throughout Sheffield – but we can’t do it without the support of volunteers like you.

Take a look at our volunteer roles and, if any interest you, just complete our application form. If you'd like to volunteer, but are not interested in any of these roles, you can still complete the application form.

If you'd like any further details, just call us on (0114) 250 2850 or e-mail:

Please note that, because we work with some vulnerable people, you should allow time for Diclosure and Barring Service checks and an induction programme before we will allow you to work with older people.
