Would you like to help older people in Somerset and North Somerset?
Our normal requests for volunteers are on hold for now. At this time we are working with other community organisations to ensure that every part of our area is able to offer support to the older people in their communities.
Friendly Phone Calls Service
We have recently set up a new service in response to Coronavirus and the increased isolation it has caused many older people to experience. The Friendly Phone Calls service involves making a weekly call to an older person, to alleviate their sense of loneliness. If you'd like to volunteer, please email email@example.com.
Here are some other ways you can help:
Registering to Volunteer with the NHS
Take part in neighbourly volunteering and help support older people in your community who are staying at home due to the coronavirus epidemic.
To help you get involved we have produced a postcard that you can print off and complete with key information (including our contact details) and post to older people in your area to let them know you are available should they need support.
Volunteering with Age UK Somerset
If you are interested in volunteering with us in the future we would love to hear from you and will keep your contact details on file ready for when we are resuming normal service.

Someone from the Volunteering team is usually available from Monday to Friday.
