About the opportunity

Have you ever thought of Volunteering?

Volunteering can be a great way to meet new people, get out and about and support people. At Age UK Cornwall & The IOS, we operate 3 Day Services in St Austell, Newquay & Falmouth that take people from their homes to our busy & vibrant Day Centres. 

Our Day Services help you learn new skills, gain confidence, improve mobility and have fun with old friends and new. Our belief is that each person must be supported to live the life they want, to the best of their abilities. Our friendly staff & volunteers are always on hand to help, assist and develop a tailored package of care.

What are they looking for?

Bob, one of our Volunteer Escorts, told us why he really enjoys volunteering.

“Volunteering has enabled me to give something back to the local community and make some great friends. By lending a helping hand on the minibuses, I get to see the joy on clients faces, support the Day Centre and reduce isolation in Cornwall. What could be better than that!”

We are searching for Volunteers escorts to accompany our minibus driver on daily trips from Truro to St Austell Day Centre.
• Do you enjoy meeting new people, are confident and outgoing and like helping others? 
• Are you someone who is flexible, patient and understanding? 
• Are you fit and able to help others safely on and off the bus? 
• Would you like to give something back to the Cornish Community?

If your answers are YES, then you would make a perfect volunteer escort.

Practical Considerations
