Following government advice, Age UK Bristol has suspended all face-to-face appointments and services and are operating over the phone only. We have set up a new Support Hub phone line for older people and their families to cope with the impact of coronavirus [COVID-19] in Bristol. Please visit our Support Hub page for further information.
Active Together supports people living with early stage dementia to remain active. Each volunteer is matched with a person living with dementia with whom they share an interest. Each matched pair goes out regularly and participate in a shared interest or activity – current outings include cycling, meditation classes, visiting galleries and simply going for a walk and a cup of tea.
Volunteers receive training and ongoing support and expenses are covered. We are currently recruiting volunteers for this rewarding role – if you are interested in volunteering please go to the Volunteer with us page and download a role description and an application form.
If you know someone living with dementia who would like an Active Together volunteer to go out with please contact Clare Havard on 0117 440 4303 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
