giving information

Information and Advice (I&A) is a confidential service which plays a crucial role in improving the quality of life for older people.

As a volunteer adviser, you will give older people the information and advice they need to enable them to:

  • secure rights and entitlements
  • make informed choices about housing, care and money, and avoid future problems
  • play a full role in communities and society.

 What you will get out of it

  • Pride in providing such detailed guidance to help others in this unique role
  • A sense of achievement from being able to make an immediate difference to someone's quality of life
  • It's a great opportunity to meet new people and be part of a lovely team of volunteers
  • Agreed expenses
