Age Concern has many varied volunteer roles with different time commitments. All our roles are rewarding, and our volunteers really enjoy being able to make a valuable contribution and have a positive impact on people’s lives.
Our volunteers have varied life experiences and we welcome volunteers from all backgrounds. If you have any support or access needs, we will be happy to discuss this with you to enable you to volunteer.
Age Concern volunteers complete an application form, attend an informal interview, provide 2 references, complete an enhanced DBS check and attend compulsory half day induction training.
Community Transport volunteers also complete driver license, car tax, MOT and insurance checks.
