Side by Side Volunteer

Side by Side Volunteer

Side by Side is an Alzheimer’s Society initiative which aims to tackle social isolation and loneliness. Volunteers provide companionship and encourage people with dementia to continue with a hobby or interest, or start a new one. This helps to build the confidence of people living with dementia.

Could you spare an hour or two each week to meet with a person within your community, to have a chat or go out for a coffee together, or maybe a hobby such as golf, a walking club or a poetry group?

Training will be provided as well as ongoing support from a specified Role Manager. There is no aspect of personal care in this role, and it can be done at a time convenient to you, including evenings and weekends.

For more information, or to request a Registration Form, please contact Clare Lucas, Volunteering Officer on 01249 443469 or e-mail: clare.lucas@alzheimers.org.uk
