Description

Alzheimer's Society

Side by Side Volunteer

Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading support and research charity for anyone affected by dementia in the UK.

Side by Side volunteers provide invaluable, person centred opportunities for people living with dementia.  You could enable someone to take part in social and recreational activities- staying connected to the things they love such as listening to music, enjoying a good conversation, keeping active in the local community or leisure centre or giving someone the confidence to take part in groups. Your involvement will enable people with dementia, help them feel less isolated or lonely and focus on their individual strengths.  This role does not provide personal care.

  • Willing to volunteer within service boundaries and to learn new skills

Additional:

  • Full training will be provided for this role

  • Travel expenses and other out of pocket expenses are paid in line with the volunteer expenses policy
