Volunteering with MYsocial is a fun, flexible and social opportunity. We're looking for friendly faces to host small group events aimed primarily at older adults. You'll be there to meet guests, chat with them and make sure they're having a good time.

Social Engager

We're looking for people to call older people and engage people with the MYsocial calendar. You don't need to have any particular qualifications just the time to spend calling a few people a week for a quick chat, find out a bit about them and what they enjoy doing and advise them on some events they might like to join in with.

We would like to create two fundraising groups in Lambeth to hold events in the community to raise money. The groups would be comprised of approximately 7-8 people who would choose what kind of events they would arrange but typical events include: quiz nights, stalls at fairs, car washing, gig and comedy nights, taking collection tins to local businesses etc.

Trustee of the Board

Ever thought of helping a charity by becoming a trustee? We are looking for new trustees who are part of our diverse Lambeth community who would like to use their abilities to help us develop and deliver our services to older people.
