Could you spare an hour a week? You could really help make life happier for older people in your community.
At independent local charity Age UK Somerset (not to be confused with the separate, much larger national charity Age UK) we are working hard to help older people feel less lonely, listened to, given help when they are struggling financially and to always be there when they have no-one else to turn to. But we can’t do it without your help.
Volunteers help us deliver our much-needed services in your community and throughout Somerset and North Somerset. We have a variety of roles which are interesting, satisfying and enjoyable. Our Volunteers say they feel good when they know they are helping, they like giving something back, they appreciate feeling a renewed sense of purpose and they enjoy meeting new people and learning new skills.
Help to reduce loneliness and put a smile on someone’s face with a friendly phone call, home visit or providing company and boosting someone’s wellbeing by walking and talking,
bring people together in fun chair based exercise groups
reduce financial anxiety by helping with benefit claims.
However much time you can spare, and whatever your interests, please get in touch – we will be keen to take up your offer of help.
