Volunteers’ Week 2022 begins on Wednesday 1 June and gives the Age UK network a chance to highlight the fantastic efforts of those who volunteer their time and talent for the benefit of others.
It’s also a chance to invite new volunteers to get involved with our organisations. The timing couldn’t be better given we’re in need of many additional volunteers within so many of our services and operations.
Celebrating the volunteers who give up their time to support older people, and reflecting on the lessons we can learn on the need for greater flexibility in volunteering opportunities.
Ruth Lowe explains why we need more volunteers for the Age UK Telephone Friendship Service, and why the experience is rewarding for older people and their telephone friends alike.
