We rely on volunteers to help deliver vital services, they also support us to reach more older people across the two counties.

 Could you make a difference? 

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 month, other people do more.

What do we offer in return for your time?

Comprehensive training, appropriate DBS, expenses and social events. We hugely value the contribution volunteers make to our organisation. We pursue a vigorous equal opportunities policy and actively encourage and welcome volunteers of diverse ages and genders, as well as social, cultural and religious backgrounds.

    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.
