Volunteer opportunity description

The Silver Line is the UK’s only free, 24 hour, confidential  helpline, specifically for vulnerable and isolated older people, open every day and night of the year, offering information, friendship, or a chat whenever needed. Since launching in 2013, we have received more than 1.6 million calls, some simply to say “Goodnight”.

We need your help this Christmas at several London Underground stations, to collect money on our behalf on the days below.

The Silver Line is funded entirely through voluntary donations. Last Christmas, we were unable to answer more than 5,000 calls due to the huge demand. Just £5 enables us to answer a call, so please help us be available for every older person who needs us this year. We need your help at our  Christmas collections at several London underground stations, and would love you to volunteer to join us.



We are looking for volunteers to help us collect throughout the day on the dates and stations below

11th December

  • St James' Park

12th December

  • Crystal Palace 
  • Goodge Street

18th December

  • Euston
