Volunteering roles with Age UK Buckinghamshire
Could you visit or call a lonely older person? Help us fight loneliness in Buckinghamshire by becoming a befriender. You'll be matched with an isolated older person and visit them every week to provide company. This is a vital service helping to alleviate loneliness and isolation in older people in your local community.
This is a home visiting role to advise older people of benefit entitlement and complete application forms on their behalf. If you would like to help maximise the incomes of local older people, this role is for you. Full training will be given and support is on-going. Travel expenses incurred will be reimbursed.
Volunteer in our First Contact Team and answer a range of queries relating to being an older person within Buckinghamshire. We have a small but mighty Information and advice team that will give you full training and on-going support. Give us a call for an informal chat about the role.
We are a company limited by guarantee, managed by a Board of Trustees. The board has overall legal responsibility for the work and finances of the organisation.
