Care Volunteers

Our activities programme for older people stimulates older people socially, cognitively and physically to improve their emotional and physical well-being.  Most important of all though is that it’s fun!

Volunteers are key to making our activities programme a success.  If you have a skill or interest that you’d like to share we’d love to hear from you – currently volunteers run singing, creative writing, computing and drama activities.  You don’t have to be an expert.  A warm and open approach is the most important thing and you can learn new skills alongside older people.

If you’d like to get involved or have an idea for an activity contact

Current opportunities

We are keen to hear from volunteers interested in supporting the following activities

Activities Volunteer Support for Older People:

We support a great group of older people every day at our Millman Street Community Centre.  If you have time to regularly attend and help make those days fun we want to hear from you.  That might mean making a cup of tea for older people, joining in our arts and exercise activities or just taking time to listen and talk to people.
