Volunteering roles with Age UK Scarborough & District

  • Befriending in our community

    Help us fight loneliness by becoming a befriender. If you are able to visit in person or make phonecalls, you can make a great difference to the lives of local eldery people.

  • Helping in our charity shops

    Meet new people and have fun while volunteering in our shops. You could be helping to serve on the counter, sorting through and preparing stock for sale or assisting with displays.

  • Giving information and advice

    Could you help us to provide vital information and advice to older people in Scarborough and Ryedale? As a Community Link worker, you could accomplish much for our local area.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community. We have also been awarded an ESF grant to help those that are unemployed or retired to return to volunteering or to upskill themselves.

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills. An extended DBS may be required, and can be arranged.

How much time do I need to give?

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