Volunteering

AGE Concern Eastbourne has been caring for older people in Eastbourne for 65 years.

More than 225 volunteers help our charity each year and without them we could not deliver a first-class range of
activities and services to the community.

How you can help

AGE Concern Eastbourne is an enjoyable and rewarding place to work as a volunteer. If you are caring and committed, and would like to help older people remain independent, we’d love you to join our team.

Our volunteer opportunities include:

– Providing Welfare Rights, Information and Advice
– Supporting older people in day care activities
– Assisting in one of our AGE Concern shops
–   Visiting or telephoning isolated people in their homes as part
of our Befriending and Forget Me Not service
–   Aiding an older person’s recovery as part of our Home From
Hospital service
–   Escorting or driving older people on organised Shopping
Transport trips
–   Leading a walk along Eastbourne’s beautiful seafront in our
Walking for Wellness activity
– Computer or administrative work

Thousands of individuals in Eastbourne are reliant on our volunteer network and we are very proud of their commitment
and dedication.

Something for you

As a volunteer you will have the chance to make a real difference to someone’s life. In addition you will be offered the
opportunity to develop new skills and undertake training.

”  I have derived so much pleasure  from the friendships that have  flourished with the people I have befriended whilst volunteering for  AGE Concern Eastbourne.”
