Abbeyfield is a national charity that provides housing and care for older people and is committed to alleviating loneliness. Our vision is ‘making time for older people’ and we see volunteers as crucial in helping us to achieve this.
Abbeyfield has sheltered houses, care homes, independent living schemes and homes specifically designed to support older people with dementia all over the UK.
Abbeyfield can support you to complete the volunteering section of your Award and volunteering opportunities are flexible to suit you. From helping a resident learn to use technology, to assisting at mealtimes to playing board games with residents and even helping with events, there are many roles to choose from!
Please make sure you speak to your DofE leader before signing up to volunteer with Abbeyfield.
Our homes are located all over the UK. Please go to the Abbeyfield website and use the search function to find your nearest home. Contact your local home directly to discuss volunteering opportunities.
