A little of your precious time given to Age UK South Gloucestershire will help improve the lives of older people.

Age UK South Gloucestershire would not be the organisation it is today without the dedicated support of its volunteers. Volunteers are involved in all of our services enabling us to reach more people in need of help.

Information and advice volunteering

Urgent need for Volunteers for the Befriending service

We are in need of Befriending volunteers; we currently have a waiting list in excess of 200 people waiting for a volunteer to visit them once a week for a chat.

We have people waiting in neary all of South Glos communities and would love to hear from you if you could give an hour a week. 

However, we urgently need volunteers in the Yate, Kingswood, Hanham, Warmley, Longwell Green, Thornbury, Filton, Patchway, Staple Hill and Downend communities. Please get in contact if you feel you could help.


Information and Advice Volunteers

We are in need of volunteers who are willing to be trained to provide free benefits checks. The role can either be based in our Thornbury office or in clients' homes. Full training will be provided and the opportunity will be supported by our Information and Advice Manager.

Activity Day Club Volunteers

We have three Activity Day Clubs that are in Kingswood and Filton and Downend. We are looking for volunteers to spend time with older people and participate in the activities.  We would also love to hear from you if you have a skill or particular hobby you could share.

New opportunities

We are starting a new project in 2017 supporting people in later life to get on line and support them with using iPads.  we are starting with Apple products as this is by far the biggest request for help that we receive.  We are in need of Technology Volunteers to support group training and side by side training in clients homes.

We are in need of a Fundraising volunteer.  Can you give 4 hours a week to come to our Thornbury office and support our CEO and senior management team with identifying and applying for funding to continue our work?  We are looking for a volunteer who has experience of using computers and has had some experience of fundraising in the past.
