Independent Age are looking for Media Volunteers aged 65 and over across the UK to help us raise awareness of the experiences of financial hardship in later life in the media.
The cost-of-living crisis has hit many hard. Every day, we hear from older people and their families about the challenges they are facing, from rising costs to difficulties accessing appropriate support and information. Our Media Team help ensure that these stories are heard by as many people as possible, by working with national and local media to secure interviews and coverage.
As a Media Volunteer, you would play a vital role in raising the profile of these experiences, by speaking to and appearing on the television, radio and in the press. We receive a lot of requests from the media asking to interview or speak with older people about what they are facing, so you would be part of a group of volunteers that would help us by speaking to the media about your personal experiences of financial hardship in later life.
