Volunteering is very rewarding and people of all ages and backgrounds can take part. As well as gaining new skills, volunteers can make new friends and become part of a thriving community.

Our volunteers support us with a range of services:


  • Helping prepare and serve a two course lunch at our Tuesday Club. They can sit and have a chat with our service users over a cup of tea, biscuits are always provided!

  • Setting up the venue for our two exercise classes, serving refreshments and helping the less mobile to get safely to the class.

  • Running our monthly Film Club and serving refreshments.

  • Volunteers visit people in their own home for a friendly chat and much needed company for people who may be housebound or lonely.

  • Gardening 

  • Transport to medical appointments and social engagements.

  • Phone calls  – volunteers telephone people every week for a friendly chat.

  • Office work, answering the telephone, dealing with visitors to the office and general administration work.

  • Day trips  - pushing wheelchairs and providing company and support

  • Digital drop in - offering one to one support for people to use their tablets, phones and computers


    We are currently looking for the following:

  • Visitors for people who are housebound or lonely

  • Car owner/drivers

  • Wheelchair pushers

  • Trustee / Committee Members

  • Tuesday lunch club helpers


Volunteers do not need any formal qualifications, just time to spare, a caring nature and an interest in the work we do in supporting older people in the community. A few hours a week can be very rewarding for volunteers and can make a big difference in someone’s life. 


Potential volunteers will have to pass a DBS (CRB) check and provide two references. They will receive induction training and ongoing support. We also hold a regular support/social group for volunteers to get together.
