Volunteering

Everyday Heroes

“I have made a close friendship with the lady that I visit and send her postcards when we travel which I know she enjoys receiving. Very small but I love sending them as much as she likes receiving them. Volunteering at Whiteley is now so much part of my life I can’t really imagine not doing it!”

Would you or your group like to volunteer at Whiteley? You’d be joining a great team! As a small charity, volunteers are very important to us. They are the everyday heroes who work alongside our staff to make a real difference to those living here at Whiteley Village.

There are lots of different ways in which you can support our charity and our vision - to make Whiteley the best place to age in Britain.

Individuals

We welcome those with any skills and any amount of time to spare. There are a huge variety of activities, events and projects you can get involved in, such as our Befriending Scheme which supports residents who might otherwise be lonely or isolated.

So, if you can offer a regular commitment, or just a one-off, we’d love to hear from you.

Schools, colleges and universities

We are proud to have strong partnerships with a number of our local schools, colleges and universities.

This has resulted in some exciting inter-generational work between our residents and young people who have helped organise events such as picnics and sing-a-longs or worked alongside our estates team in the Village.

If your young people would be interested in supporting us, please get in touch for more information.
