Volunteers - we couldn't do it without you

Volunteers are vital to our organisation. Without volunteers we wouldn’t be able to help and support older people in the way we do.

It doesn’t matter if you have never volunteered before or what skills you have, anyone from 17 to 107 can volunteer with us. If you only have a couple of hours a week or many hours to spare, we would like to hear from you.

Roles vary across the organisation. There is something for everyone. Training and support is provided. Please click below to see more detailed information on our current roles.

If you have a particular skill, interest or hobby you would like to share and it’s not listed on our role descriptions, please do let us know as we are always looking for new ideas.

Donating your time and skills is an amazing gift, please download and complete our simple application form and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

Why volunteer?

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and support the work we do in the community.

Who can volunteer?

Almost anyone can be a volunteer. We have a wide range of roles which suit different people and different skills.

How much time do I need to give?

It depends on the volunteer role you are interested in. Some people give an hour a week, other people do more.

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.
