Volunteer With Us

If you are interested in volunteering with us, The type of work that our Volunteers are involved in can be varied. Please contact us and we can discuss this further with you.

Linking older people who are facing major housing/care decision with those who have dealt with a similar situation so that they can offer ‘peer to peer’ support.

Running awareness raising workshops and training for older people, volunteers and professionals. The aim is to cascade greater knowledge to enable informed decision making and also encourage more people to plan ahead.

Enable older volunteers to undertake ‘outreach’ talks and events, pre-and early retirement workshops, pass it on training and community outreach.
