Volunteer with Age in Spain.

Volunteers are central to everything that we do at Age in Spain. From our members to our Executive Committee that governs our activities, through to our front line service providers and behind the scenes workers, Age in Spain is a volunteering led organisation. Supported by a very small staff team  we work together to help the thousands of people across Spain and beyond who we help.

Would you like to volunteer with us? We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities and we positively welcome everyone to get involved.

All our volunteers are given

  • free insurance cover for your work with Age in Spain

  • free membership of Age in Spain which gives you the right to attend and vote at our General meetings

  • training and regular support to ensure that you are properly equipped for your voluntary work

  • out of pocket expenses for agreed travel and costs that you incur on our behalf 

  • a regular newsletter and invites to our volunteer meetings (mostly online so no travel involved)


Please see our current volunteering opportunities below for more details.


If we don't have an opportunity that meets your skills and interests, but you have another suggestion - get in touch. Some of our most innovative projects have been sparked by people like you - people who have something to offer and are looking for the opportunity to channel your skills, enthusiasm and experience that helps us deliver our mission. 

We can also help signpost you to other organisations that might need your support.

Infoline Assistant

Recruitment now open. Bi-lingual Spanish/English applicants needed.

Voluntary position. Help from anywhere with a stable internet connection via Age in Spain's virtual contact centre.

Help the English speaking community in Spain to access the right information to help them live their life in Spain. Age in Spain is a vital source of information and support services to help people plan for and manage their later life in Spain.  As a member of the Infoline team you will respond to telephone and email enquiries covering the practicalities of moving to and living Spain. Supported by an extensive library of information resources, you will provide the time and patience to talk them through the practical steps they need to take when dealing with change, especially in later life, from day to day matters such as residency questions through to accessing local services and support when in crisis or isolated. 

This role is a remote opportunity that can be done from anywhere in Spain, or even abroad, provided you have a good internet connection and computer.


Recruitment opening soon.

Help people in later life when they need that extra assistance.

The Casework Service helps older people and their carers to access welfare services and financial benefits to help maximise independence. When we receive a request for help, information alone may not be enough. We ask a Caseworker to visit the client to gather information about their situation so that we can find the services and support that will help resolve their problems. 

As a Caseworker you will be the vital link between the client and our Casework Manager who organises the help that can be accessed. This is an intermittent role, so is ideal if you want to volunteer from time to time. You do need to travel, so having your own transport is desirable. 


Friendline Volunteer

Recruiting now. 

Make a positive difference in someone's life through regular telephone calls.

Friendline is a telephone friendship service that connects older people who want to rekindle the joy of chatting to a friend with volunteers willing to give a little bit of their time on a regular basis.


Reaching out and volunteering for Friendline can give an older person something new to look forward to in their week and help them avoid the negative effects of loneliness and isolation. Friendline connects trained volunteers with older people through a weekly 30 minute telephone call.


This role is a remote opportunity that can be done from anywhere in Spain, or even abroad, provided you have a good internet connection and computer or smartphone. We are looking for applicants who are available to have a weekly chat and offer their friendship from a distance.
