If you feel that you can make a contribution to our work, no matter how big or small, please think about becoming a volunteer.

Many of our services are provided by our team of dedicated volunteers. 

Volunteers come from all walks of life - young, old, parents, students, employed, unemployed, retired...

By choosing to give a small amount of their time, typically once a week, they're making a big difference to the lives of older people in our community.

We want to reach as many older people as we can. To do this we need your help - you really can make a big difference.

What's in it for me?

Volunteering with us is extremely rewarding. There's a great social element to our work, you'll meet people from all walks of life, make new friends and contacts.

If you're a student or currently unemployed and looking for work, volunteering is a fantastic way to make your CV stand out from the crowd. It shows potential employers that you're passionate, dedicated and keen to learn new skills.

'I've been volunteering with Age UK Burton for 17 years now. I really look forward to coming in as I enjoy the company and the friendly, relaxed atmosphere.'

Joyce, Lunch Club Volunteer

'I volunteer because I enjoy meeting and helping people. It's a great learning experience to listen to the clients talking and reminiscing of old times.'

Keith, Volunteer Minibus Driver
