Vintage Volunteers is a VAST project funded by the Big Lottery. We want to help people aged 60+ in Stoke-on-Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme. Our aim is to help them find their dream volunteer opportunities.
Providing benefits for local communities and volunteers
We offer a face-to-face service to anyone aged 60+ looking to explore the benefits of volunteering. Using their interests, experience, skills and availability, we match individuals with their dream volunteering opportunity.
People are at the heart of what we do. We want to improve the health and wellbeing of those aged 60+. We also want to support community links by increasing access to volunteering opportunities. By working with voluntary groups to advertise and promote their roles, we can help to design the ideal volunteer opportunity. This means sharing opportunities that are flexible and accessible to all. By doing this, we help our voluntary partners find the right supporters to continue their valuable work.
The older generation have a lifetime of invaluable skills and experience. We understand that making the first step into volunteering can be daunting and overwhelming. This can be particularly true for individuals who feel isolated and vulnerable. The Vintage Volunteers team are here to support people in revisiting and applying their skills again. We believe that volunteering can lead to a renewed sense of purpose and self-worth, and also bring about change locally.
