Volunteer opportunities

“Volunteering as a befriender gets me out of the house and increases my own social contact, whilst brightening somebody else’s day. I started off volunteering with one ‘friend’  and now I have three that I regularly meet for a cuppa and a chat “

Our amazing volunteers are at the heart of what we do. They give their time to people who need a company or a friend to talk to.

Any amount of time you give will make a huge difference. Whatever your commitment, you will be joining an incredible community of volunteers focused on supporting and empowering people to age well.

Our popular community friendship services offer one to one volunteer friendship, pen friending and groups and activities. Our emotional support services provide crucial wellness support for people living through loss, bereavement, mental health struggles and end of life care. And our specialist team are available to guide people through a dementia diagnosis and provide ongoing support to people and their carers through our specialist groups and services.
