We are always on the look out for volunteers to help support our services. Set out below are the volunteer roles that we are currently interested in filling

Retail Assistants 

Our wonderful volunteers make all of our work possible and now we need your help. Our shops bring in vital funds for important services like our Keep In Touch telephone befriending, scams aftercare and awareness, and free counselling, but we need more volunteers to keep our shops open. With your help, we can continue to improve later life for older people in our community.

Could you give as little as 3.5 hours a week? You can pick what you would like to do. We need people to walk the shop floor and tidy and put things out, staff the tills and sign people up for Gift Aid. If being behind the scenes is more your thing, we need people to sort and price bags of donations, steam clothes, sell unusual items on eBay, and research items and prices online.

As well as helping to fund services for older people in Cheshire East, you will be joining a friendly team and gaining plenty of transferrable skills. You don’t need any experience, we will give you all the training you need.

If you can help, please email enquiries@ageukce.org or call 01625 612958.

Thank you – we couldn’t do this without you!

We have five shops in Alderley Edge, Knutsford, Macclesfield (shop & furniture store) and Poynton

Keep in Touch Befrienders

Our Keep in Touch befriending service, and its sister service Veterans Keep in Touch, are looking for more volunteers to undertake weekly calls to lonely and isolated older people. The calls may just be a chat to pass the time of day, but we know that lonely older people find these calls of huge importance and value. You can offer as little as 30 minutes each week to support the service, or more if you can spare the time.  We would love to hear from you if you would like to help support this great new initiative.
