Looking for a more task-oriented volunteering role? Then one of our hands-on volunteer opportunities listed below might be just for you. Check them out and then apply here:
Could you be someone who could explain how Google works? Could you even show someone how to connect with friends and relations through Skype? Your digital knowledge can really help to improve other people’s lives and can help you to appreciate the value of older people's experiences.
If you have green fingers and would relish the chance to nurture and tend one of our House Gardens for our residents to enjoy, we would love to hear from you.
Could you capture some great shots of Abbeyfield life for our News & Views magazine, website or for marketing material?
