Age UK Westminster relies on volunteers to help us offer vital services in the local community. Would you like to lend a hand?
Our volunteers make a unique contribution to the life of older people in the City of Westminster by providing a wide range of services and support; there is little that cannot be achieved through shared enthusiasm, creativity, a diversity of skills and range of experience.
We welcome those of all ages and backgrounds who would like to make time for older people in Westminster. Please see below for all our current volunteering opportunities. Contact us to find out more
Thanks to funding from the City Bridge Trust, we can offer tailored volunteering opportunities for those who are 65+ as part of our Give and receive project.
