Age UK has decided to significantly develop and expand its presence within Swindon to the benefit of older residents and has provided funding for this exciting new initiative through Age UK Wiltshire.
Age UK Swindon will be starting to offer several services in Swindon. Some of these were already established and others are brand new ventures.
Information and Advice
Assistance with form filling
Presentations and talks to local groups about Age UK services including topics such as staying healthy in later life.
Community lunch clubs including afternoon activity sessions
Of course all of these things would be impossible to offer without the invaluable support of volunteers.We need people who are able to give their time to help us develop these services and make a real difference to local people
Training will be provided and out of pocket expenses are paid. As we help vulnerable people some volunteer roles will require a check with the Criminals Records Bureau. We would particularly welcome volunteers to help with a lunch and activity club in Rodbourne that we hope will open soon.
If you would like to know more about the services on offer or volunteering opportunities please contact Susan Verity on 01793 687018
