  • Alzheimer's Society Volunteering Roles

    This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

    There are lots of great ways to support Alzheimer's Society, but our volunteers make a special difference for people affected by dementia.

    Volunteering Roles include:

    Side by Side Telephone Volunteer - Are you interested in supporting people living with dementia, enabling them to feel less lonely? If you are, and you feel confident using the telephone and enjoy talking with people, then this role could be for you. As a Side by Side Telephone Volunteer you’ll be regularly contacting people living with dementia, chatting with them about their interests and listening to what they want to talk about. By listening to people living with dementia, taking time to understand their needs and concerns, and helping them with their questions, you’ll enable them to feel less isolated, better informed and more confident.
