Could you help a lonely older person to meet new people, make new friends and connect with the wider community? Volunteer Community Connectors support and empower clients to gain a social and support network they can connect with, independently of the 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.
