Some Examples of Our Volunteering Roles
Befriending in your Community
A regular visit or phone call can be the highlight for someone without a support network who may go several days without seeing or talking to anyone. Help us fight loneliness in Bromley & Greenwich by becoming a befriender.
Form Completion Service
Help people in their own homes to complete essential government forms to ensure they are accessing the full benefits they are entitled to - such as Personal Independance Payments (PiP) and Blue Badges.
Admin / Information and Advice
Developing your computer skills and helping to support our services and the work we do by providing vital information and advice to older people in Bromley & Greenwich.
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community. It's a great way to make a real difference to someone's life and you belong to Age UK Bromley & Greenwich's volunteer team.
Who can volunteer?
Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.
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 is the process to become a volunteer?
Fill out the online form, attend an informal volunteer interview, complete a DBS and an induction. We send off references after your volunteer interview.
If you are volunteering with Age UK Bromley and Greenwich then we ask that you sign up for our online training courses at Bromley Me Learning or Grey Matters

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.
