Age Connects is proud of its long history of providing volunteer support and keeping people connected to their community.
Over the past year more than ever we have experienced the power of community spirit and the importance of volunteer support.
At Age Connects we want to make sure that we keep our clients and our volunteers safe, so we are keeping to Government Guidelines which means some of our volunteer opportunities are on hold.
A full list of those opportunities can be found below:
