Charity registered in Scotland SC010100

Age Scotland is the national charity for older people. We work to improve the lives of everyone over the age of 50 so that people can love later life.


Current opportunity

Having a conversation can have such a positive impact. That’s why we offer a Friendship Service which listens, provides friendship and offers support. We can talk about all sorts, from current interests, hobbies, personal and professional goals, top tier biscuits, time travel – the list is endless! The role of a Friendship Caller Volunteer is to provide friendship, companionship and a listening ear to people who are 50 and over and would benefit from a weekly chat. We are looking for volunteers who can volunteer 2-3 hours of their time on the same day each week. Excellent support and relevant training is provided to all volunteers. Including: *Full training on call-handling and our systems will be available to ensure you’re confident taking your first call! *In addition, on-going training, support and Age Scotland In-House training will be made available to volunteers. *If you enjoy a blether over the phone and commit to 2 hours per week on the same day, for 6 months we’d love to hear from you! All help makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.
