Age Scotland is the national charity for older people. We work to improve the lives of everyone over the age of 50 so that they can love later life.
We support and enable hundreds of community and older people’s groups across Scotland. We provide information, friendship and advice through our free helpline and publications. We tackle loneliness and isolation with our Community Connecting Service and much more.
Thanks to new funding from the Life Changes Trust and the Robertson Trust we will be increasing the reach of our dementia training, developing new workshops focusing on the inclusion of people affected by dementia in rewarding activities and opportunities and on rights-based training for carers.
The Dementia Training Coordinator will manage the dementia training team and be responsible for reporting and liaison with project evaluators.
The post holder will lead on the development and delivery of dementia inclusion training, ensuring that the training is shaped by the experiences of people affected by dementia.
This post is funded until 30/08/2022.
