Make a Difference, Become a Volunteer

At Age UK North Yorkshire & Darlington we are privileged to have a wonderful team of volunteers. They are the friendly voice at the end of the phone, the person who greets customers in our café, the driver who brings you into Bradbury House or the only visitor an older person may have.

We couldn’t provide activities or offer support to a huge number of people without the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. Our volunteers give 30,000 hours of their time each year, which at the average wage for the North East, contributes £357,000 to the organisation.

Our volunteers receive training and support and find it as rewarding for themselves as it is for those receiving the service.

Why Volunteer with us?

Volunteering is a fantastic way to support the work we do in the community, meet new people and learn new skills.

  • Learn new skills
  • Meet new people
  • Socialise

From learning new skills, gaining experience and satisfaction from providing a positive contribution to people within your community, through to thanking our volunteers with awards at our Annual General Meeting, becoming a volunteer with us offers a huge number of benefits.
