"I was used to dealing with money, and filling in forms. I thought I could do this for other people – so decided to become a volunteer.”

- Money Matters Volunteer

“Volunteering makes me feel worthwhile. It gives me fulfilment and keeps my mind active.  I know I can potentially make a great difference to the lives of the people I support"

Money matters volunteers help an older person to manage their finances so they can remain independent for as long as possible. The money matters role usually involves home visiting, however, during the Covid 19 pandemic, where possible, volunteers are supporting older people remotely from home with contact by phone, video call, email and where necessary letter.  We are still able to home visit for urgent cases but this is optional for volunteers and a full risk assessment and PPE would be provided.

Advocacy Volunteer

Advocacy volunteers help older people to voice their concerns and assert their rights. They support the older person by providing information, practical help with phone calls, letters and face-to-face interviews.  Advocacy volunteers usually visit the older person at their home but during Covid 19 pandemic volunteers are supporting the older person remotely from their own home with contact by phone, video call, email and where necessary letter.
