Our volunteers keep us energised and enthusiastic about our work

Volunteering is very rewarding and a great opportunity to meet new people and learn new skills. We'd love to hear from you if you'd like to get involved.

Our volunteers keep us energised and enthusiastic about our work because their commitment, dedication and willingness to help others is inspiring.  They enable us to provide vital services and support for older people in our communities.

We are currently recruiting volunteers to:

Retail volunteers in our shops, warehouse and delivery/collection drivers based in our two retail outlets (Hidden Boutique and Superstore)

Digital Champion volunteers to support older people gain confidence when using the internet. If you have a little time to spare to help others and are confident using a laptop, tablet or smartphone, we need your help! You need to be patient and willing to spend time sharing your basic tech skills with anyone aged 50yrs+ who just needs that little bit of support to access online services safely?

Activity volunteers to help with our craft sessions, Culture Companions, lunch clubs etc

If you would like to join us as a volunteer then please call us on 0191 386 3856 or send an email to

If you are unable to volunteer with us but would still like to supporting our work, please donate to us

Why volunteer?

If you want to meet new people, learn a new skill or do something different with your free time, you can make a difference to the community by volunteering with us. 

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.

How much time do I need to give?

It depends on the volunteer role you are interested in. Some people give an hour a week, other people do more.

What else you can do to support us

  • Take part in a fundraiser

    Could you help us to raise vital funds by taking part in a fundraising event? We have regular events such as sponsored walks, but you could also do your own fundraiser like a cake sale.

  • Get your colleagues involved

    Could you talk to your colleagues or your employer about how you can support us? We have lots of ideas for how organisations can get involved, including sponsoring an event, making us Charity of the Year, or donating equipment.
