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

The Board of Trustees is responsible for the effective governance of the charity and determining strategy.
The Treasurer supports the Chief Executive and Senior Management Team to monitor the financial performance of the charity and advises fellow Trustees on major financial issues which arise.
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community.
Who can volunteer?
Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.
How much time do I need to give?
It depends on the volunteer role you are interested in. Some people give an hour a week, other people do more.
Our current volunteer opportunities take place Monday - Friday during our working hours of 8.30am - 4.30pm.
What else you can do to support us
Take part in a fundraiser
Could you help us to raise vital funds by taking part in a fundraising event? We have regular events such as sponsored walks, but you could also do your own fundraiser like a cake sale.
Get your colleagues involved
Could you talk to your colleagues or your employer about how you can support us? We have lots of ideas for how organisations can get involved, including sponsoring an event, making us Charity of the Year, or donating equipment.
