Dementia Oxfordshire warmly welcome volunteers from all backgrounds who want to make a difference. Being a volunteer can be immensely rewarding, our volunteers tell us they get great satisfaction from supporting people in their community. We are currently recruiting volunteers to help support our Memory Cafés.
In order to live well with dementia people need companionship, enjoyment, understanding and a listening ear. We provide training and on-going support for our volunteers to befriend, reduce social isolation and increase the well-being of people living with dementia, their families and carers.
Your role would include:
- Attending a monthly memory café at one of our venues in Oxfordshire. Our cafes are a space for people living with dementia and their carers to meet up, socialise and have fun!
- You would be chatting to our clients and making them feel welcome, encouraging them to join in with activities such as singing, creating memory boxes, quizzes and games!
- Support the Dementia Adviser, Dementia Support Workers and other volunteers in providing client support and activities.
- All we ask is that you are friendly and outgoing, keen to get stuck in and learn more about dementia.
All volunteers are required to declare previous criminal convictions and provide two satisfactory references.
Please get in touch. We would love to hear from you and tell you more about how you can help. To find out more or apply to be a Volunteer please call 01865 410210 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
