Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community. If we couldn't rely on the support of generous volunteers, many of our programmes would be severely reduced.

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.

However, our volunteers must:

  • be sympathetic to the needs of older people
  • respect the dignity of older people
  • be friendly and supportive
  • respect confidentiality

How much time do I need to give?

If you have at least two hours per week to spare that’s all it takes to volunteer for Age UK Mid Mersey. You could make a real difference to the quality of someone’s life by offering a small amount of your time.

What we can offer you:
  • initial and on-going training  
  • regular support and supervision 
  • a chance to meet people and learn new skills 
  • involvement in the care of older people


As a volunteer you may come across situations where you think abuse is taking place.
