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

Telephone us on 0333 0066 299, email us at contact@ageukhl.org or call in at one of our offices to request a volunteer application form.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering is one of the most rewarding things you can do. Age UK Hereford & Localities' enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers help us to provide a range of services to support older people, their families and carers.

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We provide a DBS check and take up references for all of our volunteers. At the moment we are particularly keen to find volunteers to help us to provide regular gardening or shopping for some of our clients, and to provide some cover for telephone reception.

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. If you have some time to spare, from an hour or two a month to a couple of mornings a week, we would love to hear from you.

Current Opportunities

We currently need more volunteers to support our work in the Ledbury area. By volunteering your life experiences, work skills, talents and abilities can help older people enjoy later life. Volunteering is rewarding and provides the opportunity for you to give something back to your community.
