We’d like to thank our volunteers for their positive responses during this challenging time; the outpouring of support both from and for our communities has been incredibly heart-warming. Our locations were closed to external volunteers from March, and our charity shops were also shut during the early lockdown period. Our charity shops have now reopened, and as of 1st August we will be welcoming some external volunteers back into our retirement communities.
If you would like to help us create better lives for older people, we are currently looking for volunteers in our charity shops, as well as for some roles in our retirement communities. For more information about the volunteer roles available near you, please contact your local ExtraCare retirement community or charity shop, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
