We are looking for kind, patient, and empathetic people to volunteer as part of our Dementia Family Support Service. As part of a team of volunteer Befrienders you will provide vital support to those living with dementia and their families through face to face and telephone befriending.
We don't require volunteers to give a specific number of hours. It is up to the individual volunteers to say how many hours we they can do, however, we ask that volunteers agree to do the same number of hours each week for consistency of support.
Befrienders will need to attend a short induction session. This session usually lasts around 2 hours and is often scheduled for a weekday evening when most people are available.
Our Commitment to you
We offer all our volunteers the same level of training and ongoing support. We will also cover all reasonable out of pocket expenses. For more information please visit our volunteering page.
