Apply to volunteer

Here at Age UK Bradford District we have three categories of volunteering

Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community.

There are many different reasons that people choose to give their time, here are some of the many reasons our current volunteers have told us they love volunteering:

  • To give something back to the community and make a difference
  • To improve the quality of life for local older people
  • To do something positive for others
  • To make new friends and build new relationships
  • To develop new skills and transfer your own knowledge to support others 
  • To complete actual and on the job training
  • To enhance your CV or gain a reference
  • To have fun!

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.

New opportunities are always arising, from one-off support for events to regular weekly volunteering roles. 

How much time do I need to give?

It depends on the volunteer role you are interested in. Some people give an hour a week, other people do more.

What else you can do to support us

  • Take part in a fundraiser

    Could you help us to raise vital funds by taking part in a fundraising event? We have regular events such as sponsored walks, but you could also do your own fundraiser like a cake sale.

  • Get your colleagues involved

    Could you talk to your colleagues or your employer about how you can support us? We have lots of ideas for how organisations can get involved, including sponsoring an event, making us Charity of the Year, or donating equipment.
