Volunteer for Us

Join our Team of Volunteers across the Charity serving our Community

Happy Customer making Heart Hands

Why is volunteering important?

Volunteering provides an invaluable contribution to help us continue and develop our services. We recognise and appreciate the skills, experience and enthusiasm volunteers bring. Every single one of our volunteers helps to make a big difference to our customers and community. In return, we offer a sociable and friendly environment where volunteers can build on their skills, gain experience and achieve personal goals.

Why volunteer for Dementia Support?

It’s a great way to:

  • Make a difference to people living with dementia and their carers

  • Meet and interact with new people

  • Gain new experience

  • Learn new skills

  • Build confidence and self esteem

What we look for in a volunteer

  • Volunteers need a willingness to learn and understand dementia. Training will be provided.

  • Volunteers may need to be flexible and adaptable.

  • Volunteers will need to use communication skills to interact with our customers.

Volunteer Stories

Shaun, Hair No. 4

My experience is personal as my father had dementia and sadly my mother-in-law is going through a very similar thing. Cutting hair for people living with dementia and their carers and the happy feeling of looking good is something I can give people.

Hairdressing is an art-form I can give to people and give back to the community. I enjoy doing it and the people here are great, they always make me feel so welcome. I’ve built up a bit of a bond with some of the clients here; they all walk past and wave and say ‘hello Shaun’. So the more I can give back, the better I feel; its great fun. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t enjoy it.
