Hourglass volunteers are at the heart of our work. They are at the frontline for people who need support, for all those who want to end the abuse of older people and help us ensure safer ageing for all.


Hourglass offers an exciting and a full range of volunteering opportunities.


These include

  • Taking calls on our helpline

  • Working on our text and instant message services

  • Fundraising

  • Making safer ageing calls to a vulnerable older person

  • IT

  • Policy & Research (There are currently no volunteer vacancies at the moment in policy and research)


If you’re interested in helping us to end the abuse of older people and create safer ageing for all please get in touch today. All our volunteers receive full training and support to ensure they have the relevant skills, knowledge and empathy to provide a meaningful and personal service to those who need us.

Rachel, one of our Helpline volunteers, said:


I love volunteering for Hourglass. My contributions are really valued. The team support and encourage what I do and the extra training has been invaluable. To anyone thinking about becoming a volunteer, I’d say, just do it. Making a positive difference to the lives of others is one of the most satisfying thing anyone can do.
