We couldn’t do any of the work we do without the continued support from our family of volunteers.
They work alongside our staff to help to befriend older people in the community, provide support at our events, assist clients at our specialist day service for people with dementia and keep the cogs of our charity turning by helping us with admin and fundraising.
Volunteering is a great way to learn new skills, access training, increase your professional and personal experience and grow your CV.
All of our roles offer different experience and training will be made available to you which could include dementia friends courses, safeguarding, food hygiene and more.
As an Age Concern Southend volunteer, whatever your role, you will certainly meet a lot of new people and we hope you will become good friends with the people you meet and of course our team in the office and at our clubs!
Support Your Community
Without the help of our volunteers we could not provide the services we do to help older people in our community stay active, stay connected and to live their best lives as they grow older.
