Volunteers are at the heart of our charity.

Volunteering with AEA Northern Ireland helps us to increase our service delivery and reach many more older people who are abused or at risk of abuse.  Our volunteers get enormous reward from giving their time to helping older people, as well as practical benefits such as access to training opportunities, skills development, peer support and a new network of friends and colleagues. 

Rachel, helpline volunteer said:

"Volunteering is a rewarding experience for me with many benefits.  My social needs are satisfied...I feel valued for my contributions and efforts.  I am supported and encouraged without feeling pressured.  I carefully chose the organisation I wanted to volunteer with and it seemed like a natural progression for me to volunteer with AEA.  The extra training has been invaluable and out of pocket expenses are paid.  I encourage anyone thinking of volunteering to 'do it'.  Contributing positively to the lives of others is truly satisfying for all".   

Can you help? Do you have some free time each week?  Would you like to help older people who are being harmed or abused?  If the answer is yes we would love to hear from you.
