Our Volunteer Visitors make a real difference in people's lives. Through regular visits, over a cup of tea and a chat, over time they build relationships that make the older people we help feel less isolated and more socially connected.

As a Volunteer Visitor you'll be matched with an older person living in your local area and you can fit visiting around your other commitments and responsibilities.  You’ll find that visiting can be a great source of satisfaction and enjoyment for you as well as the person you visit.

You’ll also discover that giving time to listen to an older person can empower them, improve their wellbeing and help build their self-esteem.  So thank you for thinking of volunteering with us – together we can tackle loneliness and support more older people.

*Please note that you must live in the UK and be aged over 18 to apply for our volunteering roles.
