Why volunteer?

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.

Volunteering Roles at Age UK Dorchester

There are a wide range of volunteering opportunities on offer. Your role as a volunteer can be as varied or as simple as you wish. We appreciate that abilities, experience and interests have a role to play, and welcome volunteers from all walks of life. Each role is of equal importance to the eventual outcome to which we all strive.
