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.

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.
