Volunteering roles with Age UK Islington
Do you love to talk? Some volunteers make calls to check how clients are as part of our contacting programme, others make home visits to support clients in taking steps to build skills and confidence
For volunteers that are great with words - help us spread ours! Volunteers write structured articles to share information and stories on social media as well as calling people to invite them to social events
Do you have a hobby or passion that you could share with others? We host events for people to come together, learn new things and enjoy each others company. From history talks to art and fitness classes or techy help, they're all different - and we're up for new ideas!
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community.
Who can volunteer?
We have volunteers from all walks of life. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.
How much time do I need to give?
2-4 Hours a week. Or more if you'd like to!
We're currently looking for local people who have some time to spare on a regular basis for the following roles:
Community Promotional Volunteer
As a Community Promotional Volunteer you will get to know staff at local Community Centres, GP surgeries and go along to occasional local community events. You'll let people know how Age UK Islington and Islington Carers Hub can provide any help and support they may need. People might be struggling financially, have problems with their housing or be isolated. You'll talk to people informally, host information stalls and make sure that flyers are well stocked at partner organisations.

"Most people are very happy to have a chat and grateful for our interest in their lives. I'm able to offer reassurance, empathise with their individual situation and build up trust." Patrick Odai Wellbeing Caller
I got a call the other day, at first I didn't know why they were calling - when I found out it was just to see how I was doing it cheered me up. Aruna, 63
