hands

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?

Why volunteer?

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 and different skills. Please be advised that some roles require a DBS check.

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 can I do during the coronavirus pandemic?

At this time, Age UK Lindsey is not in need of additional volunteers. This is largely due to the temporary suspension of our usual services, such as lunch clubs and charity shops.

While we are not immediately able to offer you a volunteering opportunity, we’re constantly reviewing our service provision to meet the evolving needs of older people in the area. This means we may be in need of additional volunteers in the weeks ahead. Please do check back for any new opportunities as they arise, and thank you so much for thinking of us.

In the meantime, we would like to encourage you to start helping older people who may be in need and not connected to our organisation. Please consider taking part in neighbourly volunteering to help us reach these individuals.  Click here to find out more

  • Befriending Volunteer

    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.

  • Shop Volunteer

    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.

  • Lunch Club Volunteer

    Our Lunch Clubs provide a vital opportunity for older people to make new friends and eat a delicious home-cooked meal. This helps to reduce social isolation, and improve the well-being of older people in our community.  As a lunch club volunteer, you will be supporting the cook by setting tables, assisting and serving the diners and clearing away.  Not only will you have the opportunity to meet new people, but to show our appreciation you will also be provided with lunch.  If you would like to be a part of the team providing the lunch club service, we'd love to hear from you.

  • Fundraising Volunteer

    Age UK Lindsey hosts, and participates in, numerous community events throughout the year.  As well as helping to raise awareness about what we do, these events also enable us to raise much-needed funds to support our work.   If you enjoy meeting people or have the necessary skills to help plan and organise such events, you could be suited to being a fundraising volunteer.  This is a varied role, which could lead you to learning new skills and becoming more involved with your community.
