Can you help us? Age UK Gloucestershire has a mission – to make Gloucestershire the Best County in which to grow older – and we are looking for Community Volunteers to make this happen!

Creating better-connected communities is a key part of our mission.  Being part of a wider community helps older people remain independent, have purpose, keep active, and remain connected citizens. 

As the number of social groups and activities across the county rises, we need Community Representative volunteers to play a practical hosting role, providing light touch support to help neighbourhood groups function well – and be the vital link between our Charity and the groups, feeding information and support between the two.

We’re looking for organised, confident people who enjoy talking to older people, are community minded and ideally have knowledge about what activities are happening in your local area, although we can support you to build this knowledge.

You’ll need to be able to commit to 2-4 hours of volunteering per week, mostly attending social groups and helping them organise themselves and their activities, as well as reporting back to us.

At the moment our groups are mostly based around the Gloucester area, but we’re looking to grow them across Gloucestershire, including the Forest of Dean, Cheltenham, Cotswolds, Stroud and Tewksbury, so wherever you live in Gloucestershire, we want to hear from you!
