Meet the Volunteering Team


Meet Ruth, our Volunteer Programme Officer. Ruth is the primary contact for volunteers and your go-to person for all volunteer opportunities. She oversees and manages our volunteer roles, ensuring the success of our programme. Outside of work, she enjoys walks with her Shih Tzu, Molly.


Meet Fin, our Befriending Officer. Fin sets up the befriending matches between volunteers and clients in the community to reduce loneliness and isolation. He's your go-to person for all things related to Befriending. In his spare time, Fin is an avid chess player and plays for his local chess club.


Our volunteer gatherings are an opportunity to socialise and connect with other volunteers at Age UK Croydon. We'll keep you updated when the next event is happening.
