We need to volunteers of any age over 18 to help provide KYP services throughout the York & Selby areas. As a volunteer your will be given guidance and support and be fully protected by insurance provided by KYP. Don’t be put off if you can only offer a small amount of time on an occasional basis– volunteers can give as much or as little time as they wish on anything from dog walking to animal feeding or short term fostering and we always consult our volunteers about their preferences and availability before introducing them to a pet. We also need help with administration work within Age UK York.


If you would like to apply to be a volunteer, you can complete an application form (see below) and we will contact you to progress your application. Please note that as we are dealing with vulnerable people on a ‘one to one’ basis, you will need to provide references and we will also arrange for you to have a DBS check (the new name for a CRB check).


You may be interested in helping us to raise the necessary funds to maintain the scheme. We have a small group of people who meet regularly and are always looking for new and innovative ways of raising money. You are welcome to join us and bring your own skills and ideas to those efforts.


If you think you might be interested you can call 01904 726191 or e mail and arrange an informal chat to find out more about what’s involved.
