Every day, in so many ways, our volunteers give their time and effort to make an incredible difference for older people in West Wales. Without them, we couldn't be here when we're needed most.

Will you join us?

Ways you can make a difference for older people

Whether you are a retired professional wanting to give back in a formal capacity, a young student with a couple of hours to spare as an informal volunteer, or something between, it all helps make a huge difference.

Could you volunteer so we can help even more people when they need us most, will you join us in making sure no older person gets left behind?

Be there when a lonely older person needs to talk. Be part of your community in Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire or Ceredigion and provide vital support for older residents. Be inspired to raise money so more older people can get help they deserve and need. 

Whatever you choose to do, and however much time you have to give, you'll be making an incredible difference for older people at a time in their lives when they need help the most. There are both informal and formal routes to volunteering, find out more below.
