Whether performing an active role in their communities, increasing awareness, campaigning for change, or raising funds, volunteers play an essential role in increasing our impact.

Our volunteers work in collaboration with our employees, bringing their skills, experience, passion and expertise to all areas of our work.

We appreciate, support and celebrate our volunteers for their diversity and creativity. Our volunteers increase our capacity and impact, enabling us to ensure that more people can grow old well, with dignity, choice and purpose.

By working with our volunteers, we increase our reach and impact in a wider range of communities across the UK.

I definitely get as much, if not more, from our chats as does my ‘buddy’. I know that we both look forward to them every week. – Independent Age Volunteer
