A little of your precious time given to Age UK South Gloucestershire will help improve the lives of older people.

Age UK South Gloucestershire would not be the organisation it is today without the dedicated support of its volunteers. Volunteers are involved in all of our services enabling us to reach more people in need of help.

Information and advice volunteering

Urgent need for Information and Advice Volunteers

We are in need of volunteers who are willing to be trained to provide free benefits checks. The role can either be based in our Thornbury office or in clients' homes. Full training will be provided and the opportunity will be supported by our Information and Advice Manager.

Volunteering for the Befriending service

We are in need of Befriending volunteers; we currently have a waiting list in excess of 75 people waiting for a volunteer to visit them once a week for a chat. We urgently need volunteers in the Kingswood, Longwell Green and Downend communities. If you feel that you can give one hour a week to help an older person feel less lonely please get in contact.

Urgent Need for Activity Day Club Volunteers

We have two Activity Day Clubs that are in Kingswood and Filton and we have volunteering opportunities at both. We are looking for volunteers to spend time with older people and participate in the activities.  We would also love to hear from you if you have a skill or particular hobby you could share.

New opportunity

We are in need of a Fundraising volunteer.  Can you give 4 hours a week to come to our Thornbury office and support our CEO and senior management team with identifying and applying for funding to continue our work?  We are looking for a volunteer who has experience of using computers and has had some experience of fundraising in the past.

For more information, please contact Michelle Dent (Volunteering Manager) on 01454 411707 or complete an enquiry form.
