Dementia Group Volunteer
Time for the opportunity:
This grid shows when you can volunteer for this organisation (e.g. Monday Morning)
Together Dementia Support is a Manchester charity supporting people to live positively with Dementia.
The Group Volunteer is an assistant position. You will arrive 30mins approx before the start of groups to help set up, and stay for around 30mins afterwards to help with tidying away and ensuring all attendees are safely picked up by their carers or other transport.
During groups, you will chat with members, help them with activities, escorting attendees around venues if necessary, and help the Dementia Group Leader as required.
Assist the Dementia Group Leader in practical tasks such as:
Setting up the space
Laying out materials
Prepare refreshments, such as water, tea and coffee
Prepare snacks, such as biscuits and fruit, and distribute to attendees
Chat with attendees and get to know them
Help attendees with their activities or crafts
Escort attendees around the building, such as to and from the toilet or to prevent wandering off
We ask that all new volunteers make an initial commitment of one group per week for a year. Of course, volunteers cannot always make it every week - just let us know so we can plan.
If you are interested please apply now.
