Thinking of Volunteering with Age Concern Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan?
Volunteers are the cornerstone of Age Concern. There are many volunteering opportunities including
giving practical and emotional support to older people in the community through our Good Neighbour Schemes, Advocacy
work, Senior Health Shop and helping with administration, fund-raising and much more.
Over the years we have had the pleasure of working with more than 2000 volunteers, whose average length of service
has been 3.5 years. We actively encourage our volunteers to apply for any posts that become vacant within the
organisation and many of our volunteers have gone on to work for us.
Our Chief Officer Jeff Hawkins started as a volunteer with the Hospital Discharge Service before taking up the role
of Good Neighbour Scheme Co-ordinator in 1988. The following year he was appointed Assistant Director and in 1990
our Chief Officer.
If you or someone you know would like to find out more about volunteering for Age Concern why not contact us today.
We have often found that the main reason that people become involved in Age Concern and volunteering is through word
of mouth or from a friend, so why not help us to spread the word.
We are looking for reliable, empathic volunteers to help support our projects and services. Giving just a couple of
hours a week of your time will make a big difference to the lives of our clients.
