Would you like to make a difference for older people in your community?
Every day, in so many ways, our volunteers give their time and effort to make an incredible difference for older people. Without them, we couldn't be here when we're needed most.
All volunteer roles at Age Cymru support us to improve lives and help us work towards an age friendly Wales.
You can support us to make a difference to the lives of older people by helping us in a variety of ways. However you'd like to get involved, we'd love to hear from you.
If you volunteer for us you will
- enjoy being part of a thriving‚ friendly organisation
- have the satisfaction of knowing your contribution counts
- be paid travelling expenses
- receive relevant support and training
- gain valuable experience.
We have opportunities in the following areas
- Care Home Volunteer Engagement project
- Combatting age discrimination
- Culture Club
- Friend in Need - telephone befriending service
- Independent Volunteer Advocate
- Physical Activity eg Nordic Walking, Tai Chi, Walk Group Leader and Walk and Talk Befriender
We ask you to complete a volunteering interest form and speak to a staff member about how you would like to volunteer. In addition, some of our volunteering roles involve contact with vulnerable older people so references and checks are required under our safeguarding practices. Although they take time, this means we can provide safe and rewarding experiences for our volunteers and older people.
