Day Club Volunteer

26th April 2021, 12:47pm | By Annie Clayton |

Our day club volunteers provide direct support to members of our award-winning dementia day club in Warminster.  The Old Silk Works is an activity based club where members are helped to pursue their own interests and maintain social skills in a friendly supportive atmosphere.  Our members are mostly in the early to mid stages of dementia and include younger people with early-onset forms of the illness.

Volunteers are a vital part of the club, welcoming day club members, supporting them in activities like a game of scrabble and engaging them in conversations; sometimes helping with preparing/serving refreshments during the day.  We are looking for someone who can volunteer on the same day of the week, if possible.

This is an extremely rewarding role with on-going support and training in dementia awareness provided.   This role requires an initial meeting with the Volunteer Co-ordinator, two references and a DBS check.
