Age UK Norwich is dedicated to making later life the best it can be; working to improve the quality of life for older people in Norwich. Volunteers make a real difference.

Volunteering is good for you. It makes you feel good. And if you feel good, you pass on your positive energy to those you are helping.  Volunteering with Age UK Norwich gives you the chance to:

  • learn new skills and enhance your CV
  • share your knowledge
  • stay active and involved
  • have fun
  • socialise and make new friends
  • be part of a great team
  • meet people who are older and wiser!
  • above all, make a difference to people’s lives and your community 


Who can volunteer?

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

How much time do I need to give?

No matter what your time commitment, interest or skills, we will have a project which would benefit from your support. Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, stay active and make friends!
