Volunteering To Make A Difference
18th December 2014
... Comments

Our volunteers are vital to the work that we do; they help us to achieve wonderful things.

There are many ways to get involved, from making tea and coffee and having a chat at one of our Dementia Cafes, to stewarding at one of our annual Memory Walks; every contribution helps the vital work we do. 

Volunteering also provides a wealth of benefits, including meeting new people and learning new skills.

No special qualifications or experience is needed. All that we ask is for an interest in volunteering to support people living with dementia and the knowledge of, or a willingness to learn about, dementia and how it can affect individuals, their families and carers.

You can also help to make your local community more dementia friendly by signing up as a Dementia Friend at www.dementiafriends.org.uk or look on the website for a Dementia Friends session taking place near you.

If you would like more information or to register as a volunteer please email: rachel.dean@alzheimers.org.uk – Rachel Dean –Volunteering Officer Staffordshire and Shropshire.
