Older person

There are some organisations that try and recruit volunteers over 50, or are able to offer you specific support.

You might want to try these to start with:

  • Age UK (formerly Age Concern and Help the Aged) don’t only get people to work with older people, they also offer some volunteering opportunities for older people. These include being an Action Against Burglary Volunteer Peer Mentor where you help other older people learn more about home safety and security. You could also be an intergenerational volunteer and pass on your knowledge and skills to younger people.

There’s also a guide to volunteering for over 50s on direct.gov.uk
