Volunteers Week 2019

We're celebrated Volunteers Week by saying thank you to all our amazing volunteers.

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who work with us to support older people in Wales.

Our volunteers support us in many ways, working in our office, running classes with our physical activity teams or working in one of the shops in Wales. Our volunteers have donated more than 10,000 hours to help us ensure we continue to be here for older people in Wales.

  • As a volunteer for Age Cymru you can be proud of the vital contribution you make to the creation of an age friendly Wales
  • We inspire our volunteers to make a difference to the lives of older people
  • We value and respect the breadth and diversity of experience, skills, commitment and goodwill that our volunteers bring.
  • We celebrate the passion, enthusiasm and energy that our volunteers share with us.

We wanted to highlight the contribution our volunteers make to help us ensure we continue to be here for older people in Wales. We simply couldn't run our programmes without them. So we asked four questions about volunteering and the difference it makes to our volunteers life.

Volunteer Officer

Meet Rebecca, Age Cymru's Volunteer Officer - who talks about her role and working with our team of volunteers.


"My father-in-law would have benefited from your physical activity programmes. It wasn’t available where we live. Now I can provide for older people, even if I couldn’t for him".

Angela Roberts

"If you can give something back to the community and help others why not? At the same time you are making new friends. It's about getting out and meeting people, not being isolate and alone".
