Volunteering roles with Age UK Northamptonshire

Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community.  Being a volunteer gives you a regular activity to look forward to each week and you will meet new people and gain useful experience that looks good on your CV.   Being a volunteer can help you get a bit of confidence and life-experience by doing something new.  And you get the satisfaction of knowing that you are doing something useful.

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.  You will need to be 18 or over.

How much time do I need to give?

It depends on the volunteer role you are interested in. Some people give a morning a week, other people do more.
