Age UK Lindsey now has a fantastic team of 200 volunteers, helping us to provide vital services in the community. Could you lend a hand?
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community. It can be a truly rewarding experience.
Who can volunteer?
Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range volunteering opportunites, which suit different people with different skills. Please be advised that some roles require a DBS check and some carry a minimum age requirement of 18.
How much time do I need to give?
It depends on the volunteer role you are interested in. Volunteering for fundraising and local events could involve a one-off commitment of a few hours. Befriending requires a regular, weekly commitment of thirty to sixty minutes per week, per contact. Whilst our shop volunteers offer a minimum of half-a-day per week.

Loneliness is a terrible thing. A survey by Age UK discovered that in excess of 108,000 people aged 65 and over in the East Midlands don’t see or hear from someone for days on end, particularly over the winter period. Our Befriending Service aims to tackle this crisis all year round, helping to reduce levels of social isolation amongst older people in East and West Lindsey and North Lincolnshire.
Age UK Lindsey's Befrienders visit a nominated older person on a regular basis, offering companionship and friendship, supporting older people to take part in a local activity or group, or visiting someone in their home.
Age UK Lindsey has nine shops across the region, all of which are vital in supporting the work of the charity. Our shop volunteers form part of the team committed to providing customers with a positive retail experience, enabling us to continue providing essential services to older people in the community.
This busy role supports the staff with the day to day running of the shop. Back room tasks can include sorting donations, steaming and cleaning. Whilst retail tasks can include accepting donations and promoting the Gift Aid scheme, serving customers, merchandising and window dressing.
