“It’s a lovely charity to work for. Everyone is very caring and supportive. It is so nice to be appreciated, not just by the clients, but by managers and office staff.”

“I’ve found myself again working for Age UK Plymouth. I enjoy coming to work and being involved with such a great charity. My colleagues and manager(s) are awesome and so supportive and approachable. This job makes me feel human again, I am so grateful for Age UK in many ways.”

“I have been made so welcome by everyone in the building and cannot thank everyone enough. I feel privileged to be working with the whole team.”
