Age UK South Gloucestershire
Closing Date: 
Thursday, 1 August, 2024 - 14:45
Contract Type: 
1-3hrs per week
Contract Details: 
South Gloucestershire
Details of Role: 

Older people can experience barriers that prevent them from engaging in local activities and hinder them from keeping active; this may be because of a significant life event like a bereavement or periods of ill health, which result in a lack of confidence. You could help older people reintroduce activity into their daily lives and boost their confidence by becoming a walking group volunteer with Age UK South Gloucestershire.

Volunteers attend a weekly group walk in the community and support this walk by providing encouragement and companionship to the older people participating.

What you will get out of it:

You will be making a real difference in the lives of older people.

You will join an enthusiastic team of Age UK South Gloucestershire staff and volunteers.

You will be helping improve the health of older people, which has a positive impact on the wider community

 The hours are flexible around your existing commitments - no experience is necessary as we will provide induction, training and ongoing support. All volunteers require a DBS check and references. 

We have many people waiting for support across South Gloucestershire, with a particular need in Filton and Longwell Green.
