VOLUNTEERING

Volunteering

Volunteer effort is absolutely essential to Age Connects Wales, and our member organisations are currently supported by a team of approximately 600 volunteers across the country. Our diverse volunteer team work directly with older people, provide administrative support and/or help with community fundraising. Each year, our volunteers commit over 118,000 hours of their time, skills and expertise to improve the lives of local older people. This volunteer commitment has an annual economic value of over £1.6 million and enables us to continue to provide a robust range of free and accessible services.

Can you help?

Volunteering can develop new skills, increase confidence, self-esteem and well-being, and is a great way to help form new friendships. You may want to give something back to your local community, gain valuable work experience, or maybe just want to be more socially and physically active.
