Volunteering roles with Age UK Hythe, Lyminge or Ashford.

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 over the age of 18 can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.
All volunteer roles are subject to a criminal record check with some roles also requiring a Disclosure Barring Service check too.

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.
