Volunteer for Age UK East Sussex

Volunteer for Age UK East Sussex

We have a number of opportunities around supporting older people, these include:

  • Short term help after a patient has left hospital
  • Support for older people who have been scammed
  • Supporting older people who are socially isolated
  • Support for older people at a health club

The hours are flexible but it normally involves a few hours a week at a time which is convenient to the volunteer.

WE are looking for volunteers who have:

  • Ability and enthusiasm for communicating and supporting older people
  • Trustworthy, honest, reliable and responsible
  • Patience and empathy
  • Listening skills and tact
  • Objective and non-judgemental
  • Ability to travel within the district
  • Flexibility with regard to visiting times and subsequent support, with an ability to adapt to clients’ needs
