Age UK Bromley & Greenwich relies on volunteers to help us offer vital services in the local community. Can you lend a hand?
Our volunteers come from all walks of life and use their talents and skills to make a positive difference to the lives of older people. Volunteers are our most valuable resource and are at the heart of all we do.
Do you have some time to spare?
- Would you like to use your professional skills, hobbies, interests or life skills to assist other people?
- Maybe you are looking to return to paid work and would like to 'brush up' on your office skills?
- Are you retired or your children have grown and you would now like a new challenge?
- Do you want a way to engage with your community?
