We are an independent Bristol based charity which relies heavily on the goodwill of local people through volunteering and donations to continue our work.
Volunteering helps you to maintain an active and fulfilling life and can also provide valuable experience for your job search and personal and career development. Volunteering with Age UK Bristol will give you an opportunity to:
- Make a positive difference to the lives of older people. We offer a range of different support services and will help you to find the most suitable one for you.
- Help our service users, our staff and volunteer teams, and our Trustees to benefit from your knowledge and experience.
- Increase your knowledge and develop new skills
- Make new friends and be a valued part of our staff and volunteer team
- Get a sense of personal achievement
We will offer you:
- Training and support
- Travel expenses
- A friendly atmosphere where you will work in a small team
