Are you well connected in your area?
Become an Age in Spain Ambassador
Are you well-connected in your area? Are you a do-er, someone who really wants to get involved with a good cause?
We are currently looking for Ambassadors to work with Age in Spain in all regions.
You will be responsible for promoting Age in Spain in your area. You will use your knowledge, networks and experience to ensure that people know what we do and what we offer - our services and opportunities to get involved with Age in Spain as supporters.
To be an Age in Spain Ambassador you should ideally have some experience of fundraising events and / or have some local contacts with businesses, community groups and projects.
It would be helpful if you also
know how to leverage promotional links with local press but this is not essential.
If you are interested please get in touch with us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining where you are, how you can help and a telephone contact number so we can call you.
Help people with accurate and timely information, delivered with care.
We desperately need bi-lingual Spanish/English Infoline Assistants to help with the growing demand for our Infoline Service.
Our Infoline team supports 2,500 people annually. You can join our team and help with telephone and email enquiries through our virtual contact centre.
We also have research and fact finding projects to ensure that we give the right help whatever the vulnerability or support needs of our enquirers. You will join a friendly, dedicated team who are at the heart of Age in Spain's service provision.
This is a voluntary position requiring a regular or flexible input each week, depending on the precise role that you are interested in.
Help from anywhere in Spain with a stable internet connection via Age in Spain's virtual contact centre.
Join us as a Support Worker
Do you live in Valencia, Alicante, Andalucia, Murcia, Almeria or the Canary Islands? We need you!
Help people in later life when they need that extra assistance.
This a flexible role suitable for people who want to help from time to time with one off help, without a regular commitment. You will have the people skills to engage effectively with people at a difficult point in their later life, so we can help them get the right services and support they need.
Our Support 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.
Make a positive difference in someone's life through regular telephone calls.
One of life’s great pleasures is making a new friend – finding someone who shares your interests, your priorities or maybe just your sense of humour. But making new friends often gets harder as we get older (even before we take Covid into account). That’s why Age in Spain is launching Friendline.
Friendline is a telephone friendship service that connects 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.
