Help raise vital funds to support our much-needed services for older people
There are many ways you can support your local Age UK Shop, whether it's behind the scenes or on the shop floor. The volunteer roles include:
We have over 400 shops across the country, raising vital funds to support our work with older people. Our donors recycle unwanted goods, including clothing, accessories, toys and bric-a-brac. It's fair to say that our shops couldn't open without the astonishing commitment from our volunteers!
In preparation for becoming a volunteer, you are required to complete recruitment process which involves taking a reference. This can take up to two weeks but is often completed much sooner.
Once you have completed the recruitment process the amount of time you give can vary from as little as an hour a week to as much as you can spare. This is due to the many ways you can help in an Age UK Shop.
Please note that our shop volunteers must be aged 16 or over. If you're under 16, have a look at our Small Acts of Kindness page for ideas for how you can help out.
For more information call Age UK on 0800 169 8787.
We're open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
