Community Companions help lonely and socially isolated older people reconnect with their communities by helping them feel more confident getting out and about and using transport – whether its walking, bus, taxi or community transport.

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community. Our volunteers are a key resource to Age UK Hull; without them we could not provide the services we do.
Who can volunteer?
Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills. We need people to help with all aspects of the organisation, and that means there is something for everyone. If you want to become a volunteer we are willing to accept you regardless of age, gender, race, ability or health - everyone is welcome!
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.
What else you can do to support us
Take part in a fundraiser
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.
