Help us support, empower and improve the lives of older people in Southend

Volunteer with Age Concern


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 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 with administration and fundraising. Together, we are the Age Concern Workforce.

Please note, we welcome and thank you for volunteering referrals from other organisations.

As a volunteer, you will need to sign a volunteer agreement, and some roles are subject to a DBS check organised by us. You will be provided with a volunteer induction pack when you join us.
