Could you become involved with Silver Salisbury?

Volunteer Roles Available


Outreach Support Liaison


Helping our Trustees and Outreach Workers with the production of our events and publicity materials.  This may include liaising with partner organisations providing services and events for older people and printers producing our brochures, programmes and leaflets. It can also include preparing and distributing individual tea packs when we do a tea at home event aimed at the housebound.


Event Companion

Our research has shown that for many isolated older people having a companion can make it easier to take the first steps to join local events and organisations.  Our companions help older people by accompanying them to a few events and helping them meet with other people so that their confidence is developed. This role requires a DBS certificate.




Our research has shown that getting to events is difficult in our rural area.  Buses services, when available, often do not run to timetables that allow easy attendance at events.   So, our Transport Volunteers provide a pickup and return service.  Transport Volunteers need to have a suitable vehicle and also hold a DBS certificate.


Exhibition Support

Silver Salisbury Group often attends events to promote our work.  We always need volunteers to help run the stand.  This involves helping set up and take down of the stand,  dealing with the public, selling jams and other items to raise funds. Venues are various and can be indoors or outdoors.  Volunteers work as part of a team on the day.



Silver Salisbury Group hosts many tea parties as part of its programme and is always looking for volunteers able to provide cakes and savouries for such events.  These are not sold but we particularly welcome contributions from bakers who are able to list ingredients so we can avoid any danger to those with food allergies or dietary requirements.

Social Media

We are increasingly relying on social media to advertise our offerings to our target audiences.  We are very keen to find volunteers who are interested in editing and managing our on-line presence.  If you are a person undertaking education or training in social media we can offer you a project as part of your course.


Brochure Distributors

We need to deliver our printed programmes, newsletters and leaflets.  We would love to hear from individuals or groups who might be able to help with this occasional distribution task.

We are recruiting!

We have paid roles available for people who know Amesbury, Wilton, Downton, and the surrounding villages really well.

Up to 60 hours a month at £15 per hour. Please see the flyer below for more details.
