Volunteer at our Wem day centreWe are urgently looking for helpers for our weekly day centre which takes place on Tuesdays at Prince William Court, Wem from 10.00am-2.30pm.

Helpers welcome members, serve refreshments, wash up, organise and deliver a range of social activities and chat to members. Applicants will have support to get into their roles and find their feet, and agreed expenses will be provided.

We have 40 Older People Enjoying Life (OPEL) day centres in Shropshire which provide a weekly day out for older people; the centres provide social stimulation, activities and a hot meal, the main emphasis being on the prevention of isolation and loneliness.

Heather Osborne, Chief Executive of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin, said: 'This is a wonderful opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of local older people, and to be part of a dedicated team of volunteers. Please get in touch and find out more about these roles.'

If you think you may be interested, please contact Janice Williams or Claire Lewis in Volunteer Recruitment on 01743 588 570. There is no commitment, you could find out more about the role and visit the day centre before making up your mind.
