Volunteer co-ordinators need to be resourceful as people will look to you to solve any problems that arise. An eye for detail will be an asset to ensure the service is run in a safe and legal manner. You’ll also have to be tactful at times, and always respect the confidentiality of both volunteers and to the people who visit.

In return, you’ll enjoy developing skills and experience, being part of a team, meeting new people and knowing you’re contributing to the work of Royal Voluntary Service. Most of all, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’re making something happen for older people that really makes their day, and changes lives for the better.

You will receive relevant training for your role and will be welcomed and supported by a friendly local team.

Our volunteers tell us that they benefit as much as the older people they help; training and development, the opportunity to meet new people, hearing fascinating stories, keeping busy and making a difference in the community are just some of the reasons why people volunteer with Royal Voluntary Service.

Our volunteers are at the heart of all we do. Royal Voluntary Service volunteers contribute their time, energy and skills to improve their communities. As a Royal Voluntary Service volunteer you will be part of a historic charity that believes everyone should feel valued and involved, regardless of their age. We aim to reach 2 million older people by 2023 and we know that sharing time changes lives.

VOLUNTEER CO-ORDINATOR: Do you enjoy making things happen? Are you organised with an eye for detail? We are looking for Volunteer Co-ordinators to spend a one or two hours a week, leading a club or activity group, either on your own or with a friend or as part of a team. From dining clubs and art groups to gardening clubs and coffee mornings – the activity could be just about anything! It really is up to you.
