Age UK Dacorum relies on volunteers to help us offer vital services in the local community.  Would you like to lend a hand?

Coronavirus Pandemic - Volunteering
Over the last few weeks, we have received high volumes of offers of help for those affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
As part of our coronavirus emergency support service we provide help to older people who are self-isolating or shielding and in need of immediate assistance. We have increased the number of volunteers we recruit to support these clients. We do not, however, want to remove our safeguarding procedures. Prospective volunteers have to produce proof of  current DBS certification which we can verify with a photo ID ( passport / driving licence).  If you are interested and wish to enrol to become a volunteer please email to register your details.
