Volunteer with us to support local older people in need

Over 200 friendly volunteers give their time to support older people across Buckinghamshire. Reducing isolation and loneliness, providing support and enabling older people to stay independent. Take a look at our volunteering opportunities, we’d love to help you find one that’s right for you.

  • Befriending Volunteer

    Can you spare some time to visit or ring an older person who may be struggling with loneliness or isolation?

    Breaking up their routine and providing some much needed company can make such a difference! 

  • BOOST Volunteer

    Help local older people  reconnect with their  communities and discover activities they will love.

    BOOST volunteers work with people enabling them to get out and do the things they want.

  • Welfare Benefits Volunteer

    Help older people claim the benefits they are eligible for.

    Volunteers advise, assist with claims and fill in forms through our home visiting service. Extensive training will be provided.

  • Hospital Discharge Support Service Volunteer

    Help older people get home from hospital safely and settle back home after their hospital stay.

    Volunteers are a friendly face to help people make that journey and get settled at home again.

  • Community Discharge Support Service Volunteer

    Could you be an extra pair of hands and listening ear for an older person when they come out of hospital?

    Often when people need it the most, our volunteers call in for a few weeks to provide practical support and valuable encouragement.

  • Support Volunteer

    All of these services are supported by a great team of volunteers and staff helping to run this valuable work.

    Support volunteers brilliantly help with office and computer admin, marketing, research, fundraising and lots more.
