Group Support

About the role of Group Support Volunteer

We run around 20 groups for older people across our Southwark. These range from Singing Group and Computer sessions to Reminiscence and Gentle Exercise. We are looking for volunteers to help with setting up, serving tea and coffee, and tidying up. If you also have a skill or talent you would like to share with the group, such as card making or local history, that would be an added bonus!

For a comprehensive overview of our groups, check out our Group List here.
