Getting involved with Age Exchange has long been a popular choice for students, parents and retired people alike.

Age Exchange hub and the café will be closed during national lockdown, sorry we can't accept applications for volunteering at this time

We know last year has been hard for everyone and we thank everyone for their support. 

We are a diverse organisation that achieves a lot in a variety of fields, not just the visible activities like the café or the library, but also arts projects and specialist work with older people. Opportunities include:

Community Hub Roles (Duke of Edinburgh placements welcome)

  • Cafe - food preparation, serving and sales
  • Library - basic librarianship (training provided)
  • Information Desk - welcoming visitors, signposting and some basic administration

Group work and Projects

  • Helping to facilitate Caring Together groups at our centre
  • Helping to facilitate with individual projects including oral history projects, theatrical productions and events

Interested? Please complete the form below and we shall be in touch. Thank you

We accept DofE Award Scheme candidates in the Exchange cafe. You may wish to complete part of your placement in the library.


Our cafe volunteers are all ages, from their teens to their 80's. Do you have 3 hours a week to spare? Perhaps you're looking for experience in customer service or catering? Enjoy arranging, cleaning and beautifying our vintage-themed cafe, processing transactions, or handling stock. 


Blackheath Village Community Library is a small and intimate space where volunteers have the opportunity to become Library Supervisors.

Remember Us in Your Will

Be part of Age Exchange's future by remembering us in your Will so no-one goes through life alone!
