Age UK Berkshire relies on volunteers to help us offer vital services in the local community.

Would you like to lend a hand?

Volunteers are a vital part of the work we do every day with and for older people in Berkshire.

They have a wide range of volunteering opportunities, whether you want to make new friends, develop new skills or give something back to your local area.

You can support them and make a difference to the lives of older people, by doing anything from helping to run social groups and activities, giving someone a regular friendly phone call, or sharing your skills in a computer training class.

However you’d like to get involved, they’d love to hear from you.

Here are just some examples:

■     Help to inform older people in your community about activities and services that are available to them
■     Become a befriender and visit/ phone someone who may be isolated or lonely
■     Teach someone computer basics and how to use the internet
■     Help out with one of their weekly activities, classes or clubs
■     Give administrative support to their office in Reading
■     Help out at an exercise class, supporting the tutor and attendees
■     Help them with fundraising

How many hours you would like to offer and what type of volunteering you undertake is largely up to you; use your existing experiences, or gain new ones.

They’re very happy to discuss this with you.
