Volunteering opportunities with Age UK
Despite the lockdown easing there remains a group of older and vulnerable residents that are still spending a lot of time alone in isolation. That’s why we’re highlighting a volunteering opportunity with Age UK Westminster, who are calling out for people to support and befriend elderly residents in the area by making a simple phone call to them once a week.
The programme is being run by Age UK Westminster, who have seen an increase in demand for their phone check in service. There are over 450 older people in the borough who would benefit from a regular check in. While most are getting a communication once a week, Age UK are keen to increase the frequency of the connections their clients receive hence the immediate requirement for new volunteers.
The programme is fully established and is run in-house by the volunteer team at Age UK who have years of experience in this area and are able to provide full support.
