Befriending Volunteer

Age UK Norfolk

Our volunteers make a huge impact by providing a friendly weekly call to an older person (or people as volunteers may choose to call more than one) in Norfolk. Sometimes our volunteers are the only people the older people talk to all week.

Digital Inclusion Volunteer

Age UK Norfolk

As a result of Covid 19 many organisations and individuals use more online services than ever before.  We have found many older people are being left behind by these chances, making them more isolated.  In order to help older people Age UK Norfolk has set up let's get digital. 

Travel Companions

Age UK Norfolk

Due to the pandemic, some older people don’t have the confidence or even the friends and family to take a short walk down the road or to their local shops which most of us take for granted. You can make a real difference to someone’s life and give them something to look forward to and help them achieve their goals by becoming a Travel Companion volunteer.

Telephone Befriender

Age UK Norwich

Can you offer someone a friendly voice to help them feel connected and less lonely? We need volunteers to let people in later life know there is someone there for them.

Our Telephone Befriending is a service designed to help ensure regular contact is given to those who need it most and we can know that they are safe and have everything they need. Being called on a regular basis makes a real difference to the way a person feels about themselves and will help to improve their physical and mental wellbeing, letting them know they are not alone.
