Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to help make a difference to the lives of older people in Sutton. It is also a great way to learn new skills, develop existing ones, meet new people and support the work we do in the community.

Who can volunteer?

Most of our roles require volunteers to be a minimum of 18 years old, although some event and office based roles are suitable for volunteers who are over 16. We have an application process which involves an application form, interview, references and in many cases a DBS (criminal record check). For some roles, we need volunteers to have particular knowledge, skills or experience so the recruitment process also helps us to match volunteers with the most appropriate roles.

How much time do I need to give?

It depends on the volunteer role you are interested in. Some people give 30 minutes a week, other people do more. We do also sometimes need volunteers to support with occasional and one-off opportunities.

What else you can do to support us

  • Take part in a fundraiser

    Could you help us to raise vital funds by taking part in a fundraising event? We have regular events such as sponsored walks, but you could also do your own fundraiser like a cake sale.

  • 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.
