Supporting older people in Armley & Wortley


Are you looking for a rewarding and fun challenge? Something a little bit different? If so, Armley Helping Hands is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to bring new skills and experiences to our organisation. We’d really appreciate your help…  

Activity Support: We offer a vast array of activities, many of which are run by volunteers. We are always looking for friendly and outgoing people who want to come and make new friends, whilst supporting the local community. This is a great chance for anyone who wants to try something new or build confidence and improve skills through training.

Community Support: We are also looking for individuals to visit and befriend older people within Armley and Wortley. The role of such volunteers will be varied and flexible, supporting an older person to be able to do the things they decide they would like to do. This could be befriending or going to the shops, for example. We very much welcome people who can use their initiative and help older people to explore activities that might interest them. There is no minimum or maximum commitment, but there will be an emphasis on providing continuity of support.

Transport & Escorting: Volunteer drivers are also needed; people who would be willing to assist with transporting our members to and from activities. A full driving licence is required. We are also in need of escorts to assist our minibus drivers. If you or anyone you know could spare a few hours a week, please get in touch with us.
