If you are interested in helping people with dementia, there are opportunities to volunteer in our Independent Supported Living service or within our Newcastle or Hexham Day Centres. These include:
- helping people with dementia enjoy a particular hobby or interest.
- helping people with dementia to reminisce about their past experiences.
- helping with a walking group or other group outings.
- helping with specific activities e.g. arts and crafts, music or gardening.
There is no need for you to feel “I wouldn’t know where to start” because all volunteers will be fully trained. We will be on hand to offer advice and support and will try to match your skills with the right person or activity.
I’d like to help but don’t have much time
You can volunteer for a day a week (or more), or just for a few hours, whatever suits you. You will be surprised just how much satisfaction and enjoyment can be gained.
