Volunteering at Age UK Croydon
Age UK Croydon considers volunteers to be our most valuable resource. We currently have about 100 volunteers, who mostly help us for one day or two half days per week.
Volunteers at Age UK Croydon are valued, trusted and supported in their development and training, whilst at the same time giving something back to the community. They get the chance to make a positive impact in people’s lives every day. By volunteering with Age UK Croydon there is the opportunity to develop individual skill-sets in a professional, diverse and sociable environment.
All together, Age UK Croydon receives over 10,000 enquiries each year from older people, their friends, family and/or carers as well as Social Services, Health Professionals and various charitable organisations.
We have clear expectations from our volunteers and we are clear with how we can support them. Essential qualities include reliability and commitment, an empathy towards the needs of older people, and a friendly, patient and helpful manner. Our staff and volunteers represent the diverse culture and community whom we serve.
If you volunteer with us, you'll receive full induction, and you'll be expected to attend regular training and support meetings relevant to your particular role. Our volunteers also have a regular Newsletter, Forum Meetings, and social events including seasonal events and a Christmas / New Year Party.
We want volunteering with Age UK Croydon to be a positive experience for all concerned.
