Without our volunteers, we would not be able to provide the vital services we do to our local older communities.
Becoming a volunteer has so many benefits; not only are you helping to improve the lives of older people in Medway, but it is so rewarding and great experience too.
We are in desperate need of:
Age UK Medway's Befriending Service provides crucial support and companionship to older people who are experiencing loneliness and/or social isolation. You will be carefully matched to an older person with similar interests, and will simply spend time with them for a couple of hours a week. This service is life-changing for so many older people, and we are in desperate need of more Befrienders.
Age UK Medway's Meal Delivery service provides older people with a hot, fresh, nutritious meal, directly to their door. Without our dedicated volunteer drivers, this would be impossible, as we deliver in excess of 50 meals a day, 7 days a week. Many older people struggle to cook for themselves and desperately look forward to their meal delivery and a quick chat with our friendly staff and volunteers.
