Age UK is the country\'s largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life.

Become an Age UK volunteer and be part of making the UK a better place to grow older.

Be there when a lonely older person needs to talk. Be part of your community and provide vital support for older residents. Be inspired to raise money so more older people can get the help they deserve and need.

Whatever you choose to do, and however much time you have to give, you\'ll be making an incredible difference for older people at a time in their lives when they need help the most.

Volunteer at Age Uk. Come and join our Oswestry Team.

As a volunteer, you\'ll serve customers, sort stock and make window displays. But the role is so much more than that.

Our shops are a local hub of activity. Older people visit to browse and chat when they have no one else to talk to at home.

And while all this is happening, you\'ll be helping Age UK raise vital funds to make the UK a better place to grow older.
