Volunteering

Age UK Wiltshire is an independent charity working to promote the well being of older people to make later life an enjoyable and fulfilling experience. We rely on volunteers to support the services we provide.

"Volunteering is very rewarding both for yourself and the client. You learn a great deal about how to cope with various situations."

- Chantal Merle, Home Befriending Volunteer

At any one time we have more than 300 volunteers working with us.

They help provide invaluable services to older people such as information and advice, befriending and friendship services. They also help us run lunch or fitness clubs and our nailcare clinics.

We provide support and pay 'out of pocket' expenses.

As we help vulnerable people, some volunteer roles require a check with the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
