Can you support our work with older people in Sutton?

We have a range of volunteering opportunities available within our organisation, starting from as little as an hour a week - whether you would like to be based at our office or by supporting our work out in the community (we also have some roles suitable for home working).

Volunteering is a great way to help make a difference to the lives of older people in Sutton while learning or developing skills and meeting new people as you support our work.

Most of our roles are suitable for those aged 16+ and will require a DBS (criminal record check).

We're currently looking for volunteers to help us in the following areas:

  • Community Engagement and Wellbeing

    Volunteer on a one-to-one basis with an older person, either over the phone or by visiting them at home, to provide regular or one-off wellbeing check-ins and help them to reconnect with their community. Opportunities to help our clients to engage with our events and evaluation of our services are also available occasionally. From 1hr a week.

  • Get your colleagues involved

    Could you talk to your colleagues or your employer about how you can support us? We have lots of ideas for how organisations can get involved, including sponsoring an event, making us Charity of the Year, or donating equipment.
